Deleting a Subclient from Command Line Interface (Microsoft Hyper-V)

Use XML to delete an existing subclient. You can run the XML from the command line, or automate the configuration by combining the command line operations in a script.

You can include the XML parameters in the xml file, or you can specify them on the command line when they frequently change. For more information on command line parameters and XML elements, see Command Line - Syntax.

Before You Begin

Log on to the CommServe host using qlogin command. For instructions, see Qlogin.


  1. Download the delete_subclient_template.xml file to the computer where you will run the command.
  2. Open the delete_subclient_template.xml file, add your specific parameters, and save the file.

    For information on supported instance XML parameters, see Available XML Parameters for Subclient Configuration.

  3. On the command line, go to <Software_Installation_Directory>/Base folder, and type the command after substituting the parameter values.

    qoperation execute -af delete_subclient_template.xml -appName 'Virtual Server' -clientName xxxxx -instanceName xxxxx -backupsetName xxxxx -subclientName xxxxx
