SnapCenter Plugin for vSphere 4.1.1 no REST API"Cleanup"

SimsonChan

One of my client they removed a mounted cloned LUN on vCenter mistakenly. That LUN of-course created via SCPVS 4.1.1.

Now, the task still show on SCPvS and status is Mounted. 

I tried to follow official KB attempt to clean this entry on SCPvS console. The KB as below.

===================================================

Cannot unmount a backup
Description
Although the backup is listed as mounted in the SnapCenter VMware vSphere web client GUI,
it is not listed in the unmount backup screen.
Workaround
Use the REST API "/backup/{backup-Id}/cleanup" to clean up the out-of-bound datastores. 

===================================================

 

However, I cannot find parameter  "cleanup" there. Only DELETE, GET, PUT options there. Is it "cleanup" missed? Or any privilege required for this?  

 

Anyone have idea for this?

Hi,

 

Can you try the rest API for datastore for the same:


DELETE   /datastores/{backupId}/cleanup ==>Cleanup out of band deleted datastores of a backup

There has no such cleanup under {backupId}. even tired to input "'cleanup" manually

Seems worked! Many thanks. The record on SCPV released now.

Do you have any idea the "cleanup" why ain't located in the place official KB mentioned? 

I believe it placed correctly on newer version.
