I have some VM's on Hyper-V that are no longer used. I need to clear them off the server to make space. Is there any process on this? If so, any guidance would be great.

Thanks,

Brad

Optional: 1. delete all snapshots, if any, to merge the AVHD files into a single VHD
2. Take note of the VHD file names for the VM
3. Delete the virtual machine from Hyper-V manager (it does not delete the VHD files)
4. Delete the VHD files from the server
