-operation=removesviclone not working!

Jump to solution

Hi all,

this is driving my nuts. I've used this command many times but I can't get it working anymore.

I'm logging in to the View Composer with my domain admin (which is part of the Administrators group on View Composer Server). I then right click CMD "run as administrator",

navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware View Composer and type in the following command:

SviConfig -operation=RemoveSviClone -VmName=vmname -AdminUser=domainadminaccount -AdminPassword=******* ServerUrl=https://localhost:18443/SviService/v3_0

All it does it gives me following output:

Usage: SviConfig -operation=OperationName [-param1[=value1]][...]

Supported operations:

databaseupgrade

restoredata

removesviclone

findunusedreplica

replacecertificate

changecertificatebindingport

exportdata

I tried all lower case....it's driving me nuts! I need to remove an orphaned vm which is causing the pool to disable provisioning every 10 minutes. Removing it from the SQL DB isn't enough, it resolves it for a couple minutes and then comes back.

Any ideas?

Got it working. I had to remove the ServerUrl:

SviConfig -operation=RemoveSviClone -VmName=vmname -AdminUser=domainadminaccount -AdminPassword=*******
