Bug Description

According to man page, --deregister-sc takes a "host" as a parameter.

$ sudo euca_conf --deregister-sc <HOSTorIP>
SUCCESS: Storage controller for cluster '<HOSTorIP>' successfully deregistered.

However it appears to not change anything.

According to Dan (comment 1) this is a documentation bug (parameter should be the cluster name and not the host). I find the euca_conf SUCCESS message is kinda misleading, since it seems to imply SUCCESS in the deregistration operation, but I can live with that :)

It looks as if this may be a documentation bug: --deregister-cluster and --deregister-sc takes the 'name' of the cluster, instead of the 'host' of the component. I just tested with using the cluster name in both cases, and de-registration is working. However, there are a few issues:

1.) euca_conf --help shows this:

   --deregister-cluster <clustername> remove cluster from EUCALYPTUS
   --deregister-sc <host> remove storage controller from EUCALYPTUS

which is correct for 'cluster', but not for 'sc'. I'll make this fix and commit to 1.6.2 shortly. The second is what to do in the case where a user inputs an IP instead of a name. The reason you're seeing 'success' is that de-registration is idempotent (i.e. when you de-register a cluster named '', the system will return 'success' if, after the operation is performed, there is no cluster named '' registered with the CLC). It may be worth putting in a warning if the string that is passed to euca_conf looks like an IP address, telling the user that they probably didn't mean to put in an IP (though, one can use such a string as the name of a cluster).

Ah, my bad. I originally looked at --deregister-sc options and tried both host and IP with what appeared to be success (but really was doing nothing), filed the bug, and then tried --deregister-cluster <IP>, thinking it would obey the same option...

Fixing description to reflect that this is a doc bug.

summary: - CCs or SCs cannot be deregistered

Checking against 2.0.3 shows that euca_conf both reports an error when using a non-registered SC and the --help page returns correctly that it accepts a clustername not a host or IP. Closing it.
