    We have had to turn off one of our SQL servers for maintenance and possible rebuild.  There is a VDB in delphix gui related to this host and I can't delete it (even with force delete).  I expected to be able to delete a VDB when the host is no longer available via FORCE delete.  Is there another way to clean up the environment and remove VDBs where the hosted server no longer exists?

    Hey Mark,
    You certainly should be able to delete it, if you use force delete. I would file a support ticket, I know they will get back to you real fast.

    Hi Mark,

    Force deletion in such cases (host environment unavailable) works with new versions of the product. In your case, we can help get the deletion to work if you raise a ticket.
