ODA Shared Repository Not Releasing Disk Space From Deleted VMs; Not Able to Delete a VM Even if the VM Has no Files or VDisks
(Doc ID 2515399.1)

Applies to:Oracle Database Appliance Software - Version 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
One of the VMs we attempted to delete returned an error:
OAKERR : 9009 : Unable to find the resource : odatest
This VM is listed and can be seen if using the 'oakcli show vm' command,
However, there are no directories or files for it found under the expected location.
This issue can be a bit confusing as the source of the problem is the mismatch of various VM metadata / information:
- We do not see references to VM or Vdisks saying that they exist even though you may have attempted to delete the VM earlier.
- The reason we believe that they must exist is that we can not delete the resource - e.g. OAKERR : 9009 : Unable to find the resource : odatest
- We believe that a VDisk must exist after deleting a VM using the same Vdisk. Reason: A second VM uses the same Vdisk and is working but does not show the Vdisk
- We see references to incorrect, missing VM metadata which does not match between commands showing the repository, VM and vm.cfg.
