Exam 2V0-622 : VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization

Which two situations could cause a virtual machine to appear with (orphaned) appended to its name? (Choose two.)

A. if a host failover is unsuccessful
B. if a virtual machine was removed from vCenter Server’s inventory
C. if a virtual machine was deployed from template, and the template has been deleted
D. if a virtual machine is unregistered directly on the host

Correct Answer: AD
Explanation:
Virtual machines can become orphaned if a host failover is unsuccessful, or when the virtual machine is unregistered directly on the host. If this situation occurs, move the orphaned virtual machine to another host in the datacenter that has access to the datastore on which the virtual machine files are stored.
