Sometimes, when virtual machines are generated, for some external reasons, some type of incident may arise, such as the loss of communication with any service provider, which causes virtual machines to be lost and hence they become impossible to find in our virtual platform.
To prevent this kind of incidents, the option “Remove found duplicates” has been integrated in UDS Enterprise. When this option is enabled, any attempt to create a virtual machine with an existing name will be detected by the system and be deleted. In fact, when the found duplicate is not found to be managed by UDS Enterprise, this latter proceeds with its immediate deletion.
This feature is very useful, since it allows to perform a self-maintenance of the virtual machines and ensure there are no orphaned instances in the virtual platform. we are using, with the consequent optimization of resources.
To get the full benefit of this feature, all you need to do is to enable the option “Remove found duplicates” in the Main tab when you create a new Service.
This option was incorporated for the first time in UDS Enterprise 2.1 for VMware vCenter, and in the next version UDS Enterprise 2.2, whose beta will be available during the month of February, this feature has been improved and included in the Nutanix Acropolis Service Provider.
