Is there any tricky method to automate deleting unused zombie VM pseudo clients from CommServe (or SLA?). Customer has run by accident several times many VMs that should not be run. He killed the job just after start, but all VMs were registered in CommServe as VM client. No valid backup, no even backup history (also with 'show aged data') and right know there are a lot of VM clients that should be deleted to clean up the CommServe/SLA reports.
I know how to delete it manually or by CLI or exclude them from SLA report, but is there any method to automate this proces? I wonder this sequencey
- Scan backup history of VM clients
- If there is no valid job for these VMs - delete VM clients
Do you have any ideas? VMware environment is really big; by 3 mistakes in past there are ca. 400 zombie-clients to remove and it could be a little be problematic to check all of them (backup history) and then delete manually.
