ESXi 5.0 Image profile cannot be deleted

Details

As a PowerCLI user, you can create custom image profiles by using the New-ESXImageProfile command. However, after you create an Image Profile, no command can selectively remove the user-created Image Profile from the PowerCLI session.

Solution

To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the following command to remove custom generated Image Profile.
Remove-EsxSoftwareDepot -SoftwareDepot file://custom/depot/
 
Caution: This might sometimes fail to remove the user-created Image Profile and might remove all the user-created Image Profiles from the PowerCLI session.
  • Start a new PowerCLI session.
