it applies to all VMDK, directory, log and the .vswp file ?
I was able to rename the directory which prove that the VM is no longer in use but then I still cannot MOVE it out to the other datastore or delete the content of the directory.
Re: Unable to delete unregistered old VM from the datastore ?
Yeah, sounds like a lock. There’s a way you can use the command line to determine which ESX host is locking the file (although not sure how that works if the VM isn’t registered), or you could just systematically reboot your hosts. Sounds like a good time for a patch update!
