    Unable to delete VM from vCenter (Force Deleted from vCloud)

    eccl1213 Enthusiast

      Working with a customer that deleted a VM from vCloud.


      The VM went into the stranded folder so the customer preformed a "force delete" which did clean it up from vCloud.


      The VM is no longer visable vCloud, but the VM is still registered in vCenter and exist on the datastore.


      When we right click the vm in vCenter, the "delete from disk" is greyed out.  How do we unprotect the VM so we can delete the physical VM?
