- Red Hat Virtualization
During the course of my playing around with rhev I have accumilated a number of virtual machines that are stuck in a limbo state and cannot be removed. This happened when either the Manager had to be rebooted, or network connection between hosts and manager was lost due to an overwize unrelated matter.
I have tried putting the hosts into maintenance, rebooting them and then activating them before attempting to remove the vm's but their question-mark status does not change and the problem remains.
Two of these irremovable machines are in pools (thus- 'Fish', badoom-tish...) but attempting to remove the pools results in error message:
• Cannot remove VM Pool. Detach VMs from VM Pool first
Attempting to remove non-active vm's that are simply stopped results in error message:
• Cannot remove VM. VM is attached to a VM Pool.
So it seems to be a kind of Catch 22 situation.
The vm called Hatest (as in HA test, didn't work but that's another matter) has 20GB tied up in it and is not part of a pool. Any suggestions how I can resolve this problem?
