I have a vm that is stuck in limbo and we want to delete it but the options for powering it off and such are all greyed out.
How can I delete this vm since we cannot access any of the power options via the vctr?

Okay, you could try a few things..

1. Restart Network Management Agents.

2. Restart vCenter Server Service.

I've also seen it where you can't do anything in vCenter, but you can successfully kill the VM when using the host console.
