  2. Select the Configuration tab.
  3. Click Delete at the bottom of the page.

Deleting an Active-Active database

When you delete an Active-Active database (formerly known as CRDB), all instance of the Active-Active database are deleted from all participating clusters.

Warning -
This action is an immediate, non-reversible, and has no rollback.

Because Active-Active databases are made up of instances on multiple participating clusters, to restore a deleted Active-Active database you must create the database again with all of its instances and then restore the data to the database from backup.

We recommended that you:

  • Backup your data and test the restore on another database before you delete an Active-Active database.
  • Consider flushing the data from the database so that you can keep the Active-Active database configuration and restore the data to it if necessary.
