Purge archived VMs

Dear all,

I’d like to purge all my archived VMs, because in my MIQ timelife I had a lot a created/deleted providers, so I now count a lot of archived VMs in the DB that I’ve wanted to clean a little bit …

Just to be sure : a archived VMs is a VM not related to a provider ( for example a delete provider ). If I destroy the archived VMs ( via the purge_archived_vms.rb tools ), no action will be taken in any EMS ? This is only a remove from the database, even if the UUID is find in a more recently created provider ?

I dont want to destroy VMs on the Openstack side, only in MIQ database.

Thanks a lot !
