"Orphan VDIs" and "VDIs attached to Control Domain" Safe to delete all?
Is it safe to forget all "Orphan VDIs" and "VDIs attached to Control Domain" under Dashboard/Health?
Can it hurt any running vm's?
You should be fine deleting orphan VDIs. This isn't the case with VDIs attached to Control Domain, which likely belong to an active VM.
@danp Why do them show up there?
@danp Everyone have this snapshot "camera" to the right of there name.
@jweez So you have 115 snapshots attached to the control domain?! That isn't normal behavior. If this were my host, I would be investigating why this is occurring.
What version of CH / XCP-ng are you running? Is it fully patched?
Just to give context, VDI attach to the domain are backup related. During backup process the VDI need to be downloaded by XOA so it is attached to dom0 and downloaded from there. Normally this VDI should be detached after the backup is finished but if you have backup error the VDI could stay stuck attached to dom0.
So in your case if you have backup Running be careful with this VDI but if they are old VDI you can safely remove them.
