Deleting a NIC


An ECS can have up to 12 NICs, including one primary NIC that cannot be deleted and extension NICs. This section describes how to delete an extension NIC.


  1. Log in to the management console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner and select your region and project.

  3. Under Computing, click Elastic Cloud Server.

  4. On the Elastic Cloud Server page, click the name of the target ECS.

    The page providing details about the ECS is displayed.

  5. Click the NICs tab. Then, click Delete in the row of the target NIC.


    You are not allowed to delete the primary ECS NIC. By default, the primary ECS NIC is the first NIC displayed in the NIC list.

  6. Click Yes in the displayed dialog box.


    Certain ECSs do not support NIC deletion when they are running. For details about these ECSs, see the GUI display. To delete a NIC from such an ECS, stop the ECS.
