Remove Missing Dependencies for SCVMM 2012 RC VHDs

 

Ran into this issue with SCVMMM2012 and I could not delete a VHD from my library as I had a series of items that were dependent on the VHD. I resolved the template issue by entering the following command from Powershell on the SCVMM server:

The second issue will be identified by the following error when you attempt to delete the VHD:

The library object (VHDNAME) cannot be removed because following objects are dependent on it:

Virtual Hard Disk deployment configuration
