DESCRIPTION

  xen-delete-image is a simple script which allows you to delete
 Xen instances which have previously been created by xen-create-image.
  You must be root to run this script as it removes the Xen configuration
 file from /etc/xen and potentially removes LVM and EVMS volumes.
  (When invoked with the '--test' flag the script will continue running,
 but will fail to remove anything which the user does not have permission
 to delete.)

LOOPBACK EXAMPLE

  Assuming that you have three images 'foo', 'bar', and 'baz', stored
 beneath /home/xen the first two may be deleted via:
    xen-delete-image --dir=/home/xen foo bar
  You may also delete them by running:
    xen-delete-image --dir=/home/xen --hostname=foo --hostname=bar
  (The matching Xen configuration files beneath /etc/xen will also be
 removed.)

LVM EXAMPLE

  Assuming that you have the volume group 'skx-vol' containing three
 Xen instances 'foo', 'bar', and 'baz' the first two may be deleted via:
    xen-delete-image --lvm=skx-vol foo bar
  This will remove the volumes 'foo-disk', 'foo-swap', 'bar-disk',
 and 'bar-swap'.
  Note that if the images were created with "--noswap" then the swap
 volumes will not be present, so will not need to be deleted.
  The Xen configuration files will also be removed from beneath /etc/xen.

EVMS EXAMPLE

  Assuming that you have the container 'mycontainer' containing three
 Xen instances 'foo', 'bar', and 'baz' the first two may be deleted via:
    xen-delete-image --evms=lvm2/mycontainer --hostname=foo --hostname=bar
  This will remove the volumes 'foo-disk', 'foo-swap', 'bar-disk',
 and 'bar-swap'.
  Note that if the images were created with "--noswap" then the swap
 volumes will not be present, so will not need to be deleted.
  The Xen configuration files will also be removed.
