    Cleaning up old resources doesn't seem to work

    kaufmanm Novice

      We have a lot of old virtual machine resources we'd like to clean out of our VCOPS environment, but despite having controller.properties stanzas like below (as recommended in KB 2020638) and restarting vcops-admin, no resources ever seem to be deleted:

       

      #automatically delete not existing resources

      deleteNotExisting=true

       

      #time in hours an object must be in the not existing state before it can be deleted

      deletionPeriodInHours=168

       

      #time in hours between resource deletion scheduling

      deletionSchedulePeriod=24

       

      I see these lines in admin.log but I don't know if they're related:

       

      Oct 10, 2014 11:05:04 AM - User system Deleted 20 Resources.

      Oct 10, 2014 11:05:06 AM - User system Deleted 20 Resources.

      Oct 10, 2014 11:05:08 AM - User system Deleted 20 Resources.

       

      Even if it did delete 60 resources at one point, there are hundreds of VMs with no metrics, with relationships to vCenters that don't exist.
