Kill process but still vcenter think is going

Hi gurus

I had a hung task Migrate virtual machine, that got stuck on 13%, that was the only machine to get stuck all other VM migrated correctly, I ssh to the esxi and found the vmx process not to hard as it was the only VM, Kill the parent process, but vcenter after logoff and back on and refresh and kick , it still shows the vm stuck as 13% and cant do anything to it

am I missing something after the kill so vcenter get the info and let me do new stuff on the VM

Thanks all

restart service in source and destination host ( services.sh restart) wait for 5 minutes

refresh web-page If vm still there then you required restart vcenter service (vpxd)

Hey, please SSH into the host and run services.sh restart
this will kill the management agents on the esxi (you might see the host disconnects, this is expected) this causes no impacts.
This should abort the hanged vmotion
