Deleting an AWS Stack

MapR resources in AWS are grouped together, making it easy for you to remove them. However, because the MapR stack is an Auto Scaling Group, deleting it requires some extra steps. You must first disable certain AWS processes that protect against shutting down the stack:

Delete Suspended Processes

  1. Click Services > EC2.
  2. In the left navigation pane, under Auto Scaling, click the link to Auto Scaling Groups.
  3. In the list of Auto Scaling Groups, find and select the name of your stack.
    Note: Type the first few letters of the stack name in the Filter field to find the stack.
  4. Click the Details tab to select it.
  5. Click Edit.
  6. Scroll down to the Suspended Processes section:

  7. Click the "x" in each of the suspended processes to delete it.
  8. Click Save.

Delete the Stack

  1. Navigate to the CloudFormation section, and select your stack.
  2. From the Actions menu, select Delete Stack.
  3. To confirm the delete operation, click Yes, Delete.

Delete the Key Pair

The MapR Installer generates a key pair that remains when you delete the stack. The key pair follows this format: <clustername>-<random_string>. As a best practice, consider deleting this key whenever you delete a stack.

To delete the key pair:

  1. Navigate to Services > EC2 > Key Pairs.
  2. Select the key pair that you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
