You can use vCloud Connector to delete a template, virtual machine, or vApp from a cloud that has been added to vCloud Connector.

If a virtual machine or vApp is running or if there is a task in progress for it, you cannot delete it.

You can delete a template that has a task in progress. The template will be deleted after the task is completed.


In the Browser panel, expand the Clouds tree and select the cloud that contains the item that you want to delete.

The Inventory panel displays all the contents of the cloud. You can narrow the results by using Search or by expanding the cloud hierarchy further in the Browser panel and selecting a sub-folder.


Click the Templates, vApps, or Virtual Machines tab, then select the item you want to delete.


If the virtual machine or vApp is running, click the Power Off icon at the top of the panel.


Click the Delete icon, then click Delete in the confirmation dialog box.

The item is deleted.
