    Vcenter shows VM as orphaned when VM is deleted from ESXi host/webui

    sachin8d87 Novice

      I have an ESXi host connected to a vCenter. While testing out a couple of VM deployments/undeployments, its observed that whenever a new VM is created via the ESXi WebUI the VM shows up immediately in vCenter, but when it's deleted/unregistered via the ESXi WebUI the VM shows up as orphaned in vCenter.

      I was expecting the VM be deleted from the vCenter inventory. I believe, vCenter should detect the delete operation on ESXi host and update it's own inventory automatically. Is that a wrong expectation?



      vCenter and ESXi host are running on 6.5.
