Video Transcription
00:04
hello and welcome to lab number 12.
00:07
And this lab will be registering and un registering V EMS
00:11
and deleting their files from the storage and also do some exercises with snapshots.
00:19
So first, let's get logged into our environment.
00:33
So the first thing that we're going to do
00:36
is unregistered one of our V EMS,
00:42
so I can simply right click,
00:45
and there should be an option to have moved from inventory
00:48
course. I can't do this while the machine is up and running.
00:54
So I do have to, uh,
00:56
shut the machine down.
01:07
Yeah,
01:08
and that makes sense is whether when the VM is up and running, there's there's too much communication going on with
01:15
the host and with the center.
01:18
So obviously, all that needs to be
01:21
stops before we can remove
01:23
the virtual machine from the inventory.
01:26
If you remember when we talked about the inventory before,
01:30
we know that if we rename a virtual machine in the inventory doesn't rename the actual
01:36
virtual machine disc or the other configuration files, you have to keep that in mind, especially if you go searching for something in the future.
01:42
And the inventory name doesn't match
01:47
the name of the files in
01:49
in the in the data store.
01:51
Okay, so the machines powered off.
01:55
Now I can right click and say, removed from inventory.
01:59
I have another option here to delete from disk. We don't want to do that just yet,
02:04
but I do want to remove from the inventory, so I'll go ahead and say yes
02:10
and just just takes a few seconds. And now that machine is no longer
02:15
listed.
02:17
Now, if I remember right,
02:21
I believe that she was on.
02:24
I believe it was on the
02:28
second local desk.
02:30
So I'm gonna go ahead and look at my storage
02:32
on my host
02:36
and local Yes, ex Cheers. Where I remember this machine existed. We should have looked at it before we were removed from the inventory. But I'm pretty sure this is where it iss.
02:45
And there we have it.
02:46
Window seven.
02:49
So it's still here. Files didn't go anywhere.
02:52
We just
02:53
don't have it registered with inventory right now.
02:58
So if we would like to re register it, we simply go to the configuration, file the dot BMX
03:05
right click and say add to inventory
03:10
gives you a chance to change the name.
03:14
It's just the inventory name again,
03:16
and you can even pick a folder.
03:20
Put the machine it
03:22
We'll just pick the default,
03:23
and I'll leave it on host 100.
03:34
And as we see a few seconds later, pops right up.
03:38
Let's go ahead. And,
03:42
dude, this guy.
03:57
Okay, so that one booted up just fine.
04:00
Now
04:00
I want to get rid of this wing seven clone, too. I don't really want this machine any longer.
04:05
So what I can do is first I'm gonna verify where it's day stories,
04:10
Tom, My local
04:12
*** one disc
04:15
so I can right click and see delete from disk
04:18
gives you my warning to let you know that you will permanently be
04:23
two leading these files.
04:25
So go ahead and click. Yes.
04:30
And now, if I go to browse, this data store should to see that those directories and files are gone
04:39
and we no longer see the win seven clone too
04:44
Virtual machine.
04:45
It's gone
04:47
pretty easy to d'oh.
04:48
In fact, it's a little bit too easy. So we have to make sure when you are removing something from inventory
04:55
versus the leading the files that you're that you're positive which action you want to take
05:00
could be tempting to just see delete and selected accidentally, so make sure you pay attention to that.
