  • 1.  orphaned vmdk file plugin from vcheck

    Posted Mar 10, 2017 06:17 PM

    I am getting alerts from vcheck that I have some VMs with  orphaned vmdk files from one vcenter. the VMs does not exist in that vcenter. however that lun is mounted to a vmhost in that vcenter

    those VMs are on another vcenter. why is vcheck telling me these are orphaned vmdks?

    Because that is what the plugin does.

    Look for vmx files on the datastore, and report the ones that are not registered in the vCenter to which vCheck is connected.
