My client has alot of virtual machines which are backed up daily..... We are using avamar 7.4
In Administration we see alot of VMs which are GREY....and the note says "VM is no longer addressable through vCenter"
From the CLI, how do we identify these VM clients and either retire or delete them???
CLI command "mccli vmchache show --name=" will list if a VM client is deleted from vCenter or not.
CLI command "mccli client delete --name=" or "mccli client retire -name=" are the commands to remove them.
There is probably a solution to automate what your trying to do with custom bash scripting.
thanks for the information but I'm assuming that there isnt a command to show VMs that arent addressable to vcenter?
If the client deletes alot of VM's then it seems we can only delete them manually.
I used these utilities to automate retirement of deleted VMs:
java -jar proxycp.jar --listdeletedvms --vc myvcenter.company.com >>retire.clients.list
java -jar av2ool.jar client retire --filename retire.clients.list
Where can I download av2ool.jar file from? Or is there any other better ways to retire VM clients automatically once they are deleted from the vCenter.
