Re: Delete a VM from Host and disk

With the first command you remove the HPVM definition for this guest system.

The second is just writing zeros on a specific disk device.

You can do this or leave it. But it always depends if your virtual machine is using a real disk, an LVM LVOL or even a file as backing storage.

Hope this helps!
