Orphan VDIs after every backup
Hi, I have orphan VDIs shown in the dashboard->health page in XO after each nightly backup runs... I presume this should not happen, so I have either setup my backup jobs/schedules incorrectly or it's an XO bug.
Here's a screen shot showing the orphan VDIs:
Can someone suggest why this is occurring and how to prevent? Thanks

You may want to review this thread. Do the orphans go away after disconnecting / reconnecting the server?
What type of backup job? Looks like you are performing a snapshot w/ memory, correct?
@Danp I had already removed the orphans today, however, I'll check again tomorrow because it happens every day. All of my backups are delta backups and they all use the "with memory" option.
I'll post more info tomorrow after my backups run again overnight. It's sort of odd that I'm left with orphan VDIs after every backup, because if I don't delete them, they're replaced by new orphans the following night, etc.
Those are suspend image, I wonder if it's normal or not to report them here. Ping @badrAZ
These VDI-snapshots are linked to the snapshots with memory created by the delta backup. They shouldn't be listed here.
There is the dedicated github issue. Please follow it to get its evolution.
@badrAZ I've rebuilt XO and confirm that the suspended VDI snapshots are no longer listed as orphans, thanks!
