MDATA-DELETE(1m)	       Metadata Commands	      MDATA-DELETE(1m)

       mdata-delete -- Delete a metadata key-value pair.

       /usr/sbin/mdata-delete keyname

       The  mdata-delete  command  allows the user (or a script) to modify the
       metadata for a guest instance running in a SmartDataCenter (SDC) cloud.
       Metadata	 values	 are  generally	 set programmatically via CloudAPI, or
       during interactive provisioning via a Web Portal.  They may also be set
       from within the instance with the mdata-put command.

       The  key-value  pair  for  keyname will be removed permanently from the
       metadata stored for this guest instance.	 Deletion of a key  which  did
       not exist is not considered an error.

       If the metadata service is unavailable at the time of the request, this
       command will block waiting for it to become  available.	 Non-transient
       failures	 will  cause  the  program  to	exit  with  a non-zero status.
       Depending on the nature of the error, some  diagnostic  output  may  be
       printed to stderr.

       The following exit values are returned:

	    Successful completion.

	    The	 key-value  pair  named	 keyname was removed from the instance
	    metadata, or did not initially exist.

	    An error occurred.

	    An unexpected error condition occurred, which is believed to be  a
	    non-transient  condition.  Retrying the request is not expected to
	    resolve the error condition; either a software bug or  misconfiguā€
	    ration exists.

	    A usage error occurred.

	    Malformed  arguments  were passed to the program.  Check the usage
	    instructions to ensure valid arguments are supplied.
