I deleted a virtual disk from a SAN-based storage repository but the repository did not update the %used. I have one 120G virtual disk in the repository, I deleted a second 120G disk, but the space used still says 240G. It only lists the single 120G virtual disk under the "Virtual Disks" tab. I'm using OVM 3.0.3. I rediscovered the repository contents, and restarted the OVM Manager, but it still says 240G.
Any ideas/suggestions? I need the space to create another VM.
Update: I created a second repository and, magically, the correct usage appeared on the first repository! Whether creating the second repository forced a rescan of something, or it was just timing, I'm not sure, but it's working now.
Its called a "rescan physical disks". Right click on your admin server associated with the repo and choose "rescan physical disks".
The VM manager doesn't constantly monitor your storage environment for you. When you created the second repo....... it "rescanned" the disks.
