Remove tenant user from Windows Azure Pack


The only way (known to me) to remove tenant user  from Windows Azure Pack is by using Powershell. Below simple script to remove tenant user from Windows Azure Pack. Run it from one of the Windows Azure Pack servers.

# credentials for performing actions
$AuthSite = <IP or FQDN of AdminAuthenticationSite>:30072
$Credential = Get-Credential
$token = Get-MgmtSvcToken -Type Windows -AuthenticationSite $AuthSite -ClientRealm "http://azureservices/AdminSite" -User $credential -DisableCertificateValidation

Check portal, you should see “Delete in progress” in management portal.

Hi, I’ve followed your guide and deleted the tenant. Now when the same e-mail adres wan’t to register, the Tenant web page displays a message that the e-mail address is already in use. While WAP and VMM have no record of it anymore. Any idea?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
