Unless the data portion is orphaned from the cluster, you must delete the cluster itself which takes care of all associated components.

If the portion is orphaned, the DELETE VVR should do the trick.

If the cluster was NON-SMS then you may need some extra help.

try to delete by specifying cluster name, but,
