I have exported list of all snapshots running on AHV in our environment. On a few snapshots, VM name is empty. I suspect, this is because VM has been deleted without deleting snapshot. Now how to delete such snapshots?
Below is example: Snapshot name is “removing ngt”
|servername||Test Snapshot||3/19/2019 11:00|
|removing ngt||2/6/2020 1:00|

I would suggest to verify if the snapshot does belong to a non-existing VM first. You can pull the snapshot information with the aCLI command below:
nutanix@cvm$ acli snapshot.get <name_of_the_snapshot>
Look for “vm_uuid: ” field in the output. Then query cluster for the VM’s UUID (below is an example):
ncli vm ls id=60646064-e056-2f2f-0000-0e0733edcabcd [None]
If the output is [None] as in the example above then the snapshot is truly an orphan. To remove it please open a case with Nutanix Support.
Let me know if that helps, please.
