We've recently had to perform a restore of the VC database using a two week old backup and are trying to tidy up the aftermath. In the two weeks since the backup we've carried out a number of deletions which are now showing up as ophaned in the VC. In trying to remove them I'm continually getting time out errors and strangely, in most cases, they dont acutally appear on my host. Can anyone tell us how we might get around this; I've taken one of the hosts and disconnected/reconnected as well as restarting the mgmt agents but to no avail. Grateful for any advice!
Not sure if this can resolve your problem but here are some VMware KB article..
it would be great if we get more info about error or snap..
