You can remove helper appliances from Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack, for example, if you no longer need to restore Linux machines to Azure or Azure Stack.
To remove a helper appliance, do the following:
- From the main menu, select Manage Cloud Credentials.
- In the accounts list, select the Azure account and click Edit.
- Pass to the Helper Appliance step of the Initial Configuration wizard.
- In the Helper appliances list, select the helper appliance and click Remove.
Do not clear the Enable restore of Linux-based computers check box at the Subscription step of the wizard to remove helper appliances. In this case, the Initial Configuration wizard will not display the Helper Appliance step. Helper appliances themselves will remain in Microsoft Azure.
