6.1 Destroying a Virtual Machine

  1. In the ZENworks Orchestrator Console, right-click the VM in the tree and select Delete/Destroy Resource.

    This action removes the VM from your resource list. However, the actual image of the VM is still stored in its directory. If the VM was stored in the VM Warehouse, it is retained there.

  2. If you deleted a VM from your resource tree, rediscover the VM by running a discovery job. Click Provision > Discover VM Images to rediscover any VMs in your data center with unique UUIDs.

  3. To delete a VM from the VM Warehouse, right-click the VM in the ZENworks VM Management Console and select Delete.

    This completely deletes the VM and all its versions from your data center. You cannot restore any version of the VM after you delete it from the warehouse. However, if you do have a checked-out instance of the VM, you can check that back into the warehouse.
