Machines are specified by their numbers, which may be retrieved from the output of juju status.

It is possible to remove machine from Juju model without affecting the corresponding cloud instance by using --keep-instance option.

Machines responsible for the model cannot be removed.

Machines running units or containers can be removed using the ‘–force’ option; this will also remove those units and containers without giving them an opportunity to shut down cleanly.

Machine removal is a multi-step process. Under normal circumstances, Juju will not proceed to the next step until the current step has finished. However, when using --force, users can also specify --no-wait to progress through steps without delay waiting for each step to complete.
