VeeamOne has identified a bunch of garbage files in one of my datastores. They were from an old VM that is no longer in use and was deleted a couple years ago. they have not been touched at all in at least 2 years. I have tried everything to delete these files., they are all old vmdk and flat files. They can't be deleted from SSH or in vsphere as they are somehow locked.
The owner of said lock is all zeroes and there are not any open files on any ESX host(vmkvsitools lsof | grep nameofoldvm), (lsof | grep partialnameofoldvm).
All the hosts have recently been rebooted as we just did a UCS firmware update. They were all properly placed in maintenance mode and then rebooted.....While waiting for VMware to call me back on this, I figured I would toss it out here in the hopes that someone may have come across this and may be able to help.
