Recently I had to get rid of multiple vms through VRA, However, I found that some of the vms status was showing as missing. This happens if the VM has already been deleted through the vCenter and VRA can’t find that VM in the vCenter.
The way you can see the missing status is you go to the deployments tab, check the Status if its ON, OFF or Missing (?) as the screenshot shows below:
Some of the info in the screenshot has been removed to protect my Organization Data and the VM Names have also been changed for the same purpose.
In VRA 7.6, you can unregister it easily using the GUI, You click on the Deployment Name
Hope this post helps, as I was not able to see any blog posts regarding this simple unregister procedure in VRA 7.6
This post details the installation and configuration of the vRealize Suite Life Cycle Manager 1.2 which was recently released by VMware to automatically provision vRA components as part of their Cloud initiative.
First, Download the Life Cycle Manager ova from the vRealize Suite 2017 components and deploy it using the vCenter web client
Once the vm has been deployed and powered ON, you will have to go to a web browser to configure the appliance.
