Open the HMC GUI, expand the managed server in question by clicking "Systems Management" > "Servers" > [name of managed system] in the left pane.

In the right pane tick the checkbox on the left of the LPAR's name then click the ">>" symbol on the right of the name.
Select "Configuration" > "Manage Profiles"

In the box that opens tick the checkbox on the left of the concerned profile's name. Then, in the "Actions" pull down menu (not at "Select Action"!) choose "Delete". Click "Yes" in the prompt box which follows ("Are you sure ...?") and you're done.

I went through "Action pull down menu" but "Delete" option was not highlighted and also that profile was default profile. How to get highlighted delete option.

If "Delete" is greyed out then the profile chosen is the LPAR's active profile (the one used at the last reboot of the partition) which cannot be deleted.

The profile I want to delete that is now inactive profile (currently not using). But still "Delete" option is not highlighted. I think may be access permission issue.

You must be logged in as hscroot or another userid with "hmcsuperadmin" privileges to delete a profile.

You should also take away the "default profile" property from the profile in question. To do this, after clicking the ">>" symbol on the right of the LPAR name, select "Change Default Profile". You're presented a pull down list where you can choose your new default profile from.
