Im testing out horizon 8 in my homelab, it seems to be taking forever to delete a VM from the horizon machines section.
it says next to the VMs "Deleting" but its taking ages its been about 45 mins so far does it usually take a long time.
My setup is connected to vCenter and it is a manual desktop pool. I did select the option for it to delete from disk.
I assume it was created in a manual desktop pool with a full clone.
In such an environment, if a virtual machine is deleted from disk, the virtual machine will be completely deleted in vCenter Server and will maintain the status of being deleted unless Horizon receives a task completion notification.
So, is there any chance that the deletion took a long time in vCenter Server?
Also, did you finally remove the virtual machine name from the Horizon virtual machine tab without doing anything?
Hmmm, I think I need to reproduce the problem and check the vCenter logs to see the process of the virtual machine deleting.
It is only a possibility, but it could be vc cache.
Please go to the Horizon Console and select "Servers" -> "vCenter Server" and open the edit screen of the registered vCenter Server.
On the Storage tab, you may see the words View Storage Acceralator.
Can you disable View Storage Acceralator and reproduce the problem?
