In VirtualCenter, deleting a virtual machine that is in the cloning state does not remove the VDM configuration entry (1005371)


  • Deleting a virtual machine before it has completed cloning, gets deleted from VirtualCenter but the entry remains in the database.
  • There is no new attempts to clone the virtual machine.


To resolve this issue, manually delete the virtual machine from the LDAP directory.
