AutoConfigurer cleaned up resource <xxxxxx>


AutoConfigurer is a process of deleting "RETIRED" resources from vRA 8.x environment.

The moment it's marked as retired in the next data collection cycle it's deleted from vRA


Here's a simple test performed in my lab


Deployed a test deployment


Here are the details of the deployment


Deployment details on the vCenter


Checked the latest data collection if it happened


Powered off the virtual machine which belongs to the deployment


Deleted the virtual machine


Data Collection yet to start in 4 minutes


Deployment History of this machine


Detected as powered off



Data Collection about to be executed


Remember , this machine or resource has already been deleted from the vCenter


After the new data collection cycle is complete


This is where your AutoConfigurer will delete the resource after marking it as RETIRED
