How to Detect and Remove “Zombie Disks” / “Orphan VMDKs” After VPG Removal
Viewed 32 times
An administrator may have removed a VPG as desired but also needs to remove the old preseed disks as it turns out they are no longer required. Force Delete of a VPG also results in preseed disks staying behind which may not be desired either.
To remove old preseed volumes from the datastore, follow the below steps:
Download the 3rd party freeware solution called RV Tools .
Run the tool on the Recovery Site ZVM and view the 'vHealth' tab to see which 'Zombie' disks are present and can be removed (these are disks that exist on a datastore but are not attached or mounted to any server).
For further documentation on RV Tools, kindly view this link.
NOTE: Zerto Support does not support RV Tools and thus the vendor should be engaged directly.
