SingleStore Managed Service does not support this command.

Delete a SingleStoreDB node on a specific host.


Delete a SingleStoreDB node on a specific host.

This command will perform the following actions on the SingleStoreDB node(s):
- `REMOVE LEAF/AGGREGATOR` from the Master Aggregator
- delete all the node-related directories (data, auditlogs, plancache, tracelogs, etc.)

It will NOT:
- uninstall `singlestoredb-server` from the host (use `sdb-deploy uninstall` to do so)
- unregister the host from Toolbox (use `sdb-toolbox-config unregister-host` to do so)

To delete all data, delete all nodes, uninstall all `singlestoredb-server` packages, and unregister all SingleStoreDB hosts, use `sdb-deploy destroy-cluster` (e.g., to destroy the existing cluster and deploy a new one).

  • A node must be stopped before it can be deleted. Use the stop-node command to perform this action.
  • Starting from singlestoredb-toolbox version 1.2.2, sdb-admin delete-node removes all the data on the node and deletes the node’s record from the node metadata file, nodes.hcl.
  • Before deleting a leaf node, sdb-admin delete-node runs the remove-leaf command to remove it from the cluster. Removing the leaf node transfers its data to other leaves in the cluster and prevents data loss (in case HA is not enabled).
  • This command is interactive unless you use either the --yes or --json flags to override interactive behavior.
