    I deleted a lun. Then all the vms on the lun looks like grayed out. So I deleted the grayed vms. but now in vdp, the restore will not show the vms in the lun that was backed up.

    Where are they?

    You can try re-logging into web client and connect to VDP. You should be able to see the VMs from restore tab.

    I also assume, your VPD destination disks are not hosted on the deleted LUN. - You are fine then.

    I cannot see them still. The backup lun is on a completely separate storage. What is wrong with this vdp?
