Hello there,

I am trying to remove a leftover Testing-VM.
I get this message:
TASK ERROR: storage 'ssd-1.7TB' does not exists
We already removed this ceph storage.

We don't know how to securly remove this VM.

Maybe it would be enough to remove
/etc/pve/qemu-server/<VMID>.conf

Thank you and best regard.

If it's a cluster the path may differ, you can use the following command to search for the config file:
find /etc/pve/ -name 'VMID.conf'

Just replace VMID with the respective integer.
