How can I delete leftover instant clone parent, replica and template VM's?

Jump to solution

Someone renamed the datacenter and cluster which broke the pool. I was able to change the name of both back and delete the VM's thru view administrator.  However this pool is stuck on deleting and has left behind several parent, replica and template VM's.

Obviously the procedure for cleaning this up with composer doesn't work since there is no composer server/database.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Unfortunately that only applies to Linked Clones with composer.  VMware does not seem to have the same process available for instant clones which don't use the composer database.  I'm hoping to avoid having to remove the ESXi host from the cluster to get rid of the orphaned VM's.

thanks, yeah I upgraded horizon a while ago and used those tools to take care of it.  I think that feature was introduced in 7.2.
