I am new to VMware and learning from my mistakes :smileyconfused:
I just deleted a Desktop Pool from Horizon View Admin, and now its stuck in deleting state..
What is the correct procedure to delete a pool?
Do all the VMs in the pool need to be powered down and deleted individually from vCenter and then delete the pool?
And any ideas on how to fix the pool stuck in the deleting state?
Any help greatly appreciated
If the VMs aren't power down on their own, try powering the off. Don't delete them manually though, unless there is no other option. The viewdbchk script may help, but in the end I've always needed to manually delete the pool. If you have support I'd open a ticket and have vmware do it, editing the ADAM database can cause problems. Thats what the viewdbchk script tries to do, but I don't think it fixes incorrect desktop pool states, which is probably what is happening.
Just to put it out there, I also had the same issue deleting. Turns out that it was the folder structure. I had a nested folder structure with the same named folder where desktops were created. This caused Horizon grief.. I finally solved it on my own but took a little bit to figure it out.
|- Folder1 - (VM)
After removing the nested "Folder1" from within the parent "Folder1" I was able to remove the desktop pool without issue or errors.
