    Dear all

    Due to huge volume of snapshot , we decide to stop our one VM DR fo noun used server and delete VM from Data Center.

     

    However , all data are existing on datastore  /vmfs/volumes

     

    And we have tryed to delete from SSH  with root privilege but we can't, with issue Bad Adress

     

    root@cdata01:/vmfs/volumes/5aa731d3-871ed2fd-6242-d094662ed116/API_2] rm -r API
    _2.nvram
    rm: remove 'API_2.nvram'? yes
    rm: can't remove 'API_2.nvram': Bad address

    We also try to delete it by Winscp with root privilege   but  we have the same issue

    "

    Permission insuffisante
    Code d'erreur : 3
    Message d'erreur du serveur : Permission denied

    "

     

    Could you please help us how to delete correctly this VM please

    As you stated its a one of DR VM, validate and remove from any protection group and later try to delete from vpshere/esxi  or from esxicli or powercli command line.
