Hi António,

There is not a way to delete existing reservations through the GUI other than each user deleting their own reservations. However, if a VM does not have any reservations on it, you can remove the VM from the VM host under Virtual Hosts to have it unloaded from the host. Then, when you add the VM back, it will not be loaded until a reservation is made for the VM or it is reloaded under Edit Computer Profiles.

If you want to delete *ALL* reservations, you can set request.stateid to 1 (1 is the deleted state) for all entries with the following sql statement (USE WITH CAUTION!):

UPDATE request set stateid = 1;

This will function the same as if every user clicked the delete button for all of their reservations, causing vcld to pick them up, end the reservations, and reload the VMs.
