One of our VM's in View always ends up in error provisioning (missing) state. We removed the VM from ADAM database. The VM is removed from the vCenter. But when I tried to remove the VM's entry in View Composer database using SviConfig, it throws me this error -

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware View Composer>SviConfig -operation=RemoveSv
iClone -VmName=vmachine1 -AdminUser=administrator -AdminPassword=*******
Get clone ID.
Remove linked clone.
SviConfig finished with an error. Exit code: 4
VMware.Sim.Fault.VcObjectNotFoundFault

Our environment is vCenter 4.1, View 4.6 and View Composer 2.6.

Any ideas?

Finally solved this with help from VMware Support Group. Followed the below steps:

1. Go to the pool : disable provisioning in the pool.

2.  Go to the ADAM database: delete the CN entry.

3.  Go to Composer database -> Tables

       dbo.SVI_COMPUTER_NAME - Edit top 200 - Find VM & Delete it.

 

       dbo.SVI_VM_NAME - Edit top 200 - Find VM & Delete it.

 

       dbo.SVI_SIM_CLONE - Edit top 200 - look for the VM name & copy the parent string file on a notepad.

            Take the 1st part of the copied string (CN Number).
 

      dbo.SVI_SC_PDISK_INFO - edit top 200 - Ran query select top 500*  to find the VM name and delete its entry.

    - Select top 500 * from dbo.SVI_SC_PDISK_INFO

    - Delete from <tablename> where parent_id = (select ID from tablename where VM_Name  like @name)
 

      dbo.SVI_SIM _CLONE - Find and delete the entry of the VM.

 
4  Check VC database - dbo.VPX

5  Go to AD and  remove the computer account from there
