"Invalid" virtual machines with numbers

Jump to solution

Dear folks,

I have an ESXi 6.7 hypervisor that shows some "invalid" VMs such as:

I have read that these should be able to be unregistered, but such option is not available:

They don't have any ill effects, but could you please advise how to remove them from the list?

There must be something horrendously obvious I'm missing here...

Thank you very much!

Spot on!!

While it didn't list with

vim-cmd /vmsvc/getallvms

I was able to remove by executing:

vim-cmd /vmsvc/unregister 11

vim-cmd /vmsvc/unregister 12

vim-cmd /vmsvc/unregister 25

Thank you very much!
