[one-users] Manually solving bug #1605 - VMs in CLEANUP state

Hi all,

I have one machine with OpenNebula 3.8 and several hosts running KVM. 
Also, I have some VMs created.
The problem is that after rebooting the OpenNebula server, several VMs 
are in RUNNING state but most of them are in CLEANUP state. Once in that 
state, it is not possible to delete or to move them to a different state.
I've found a bug related to this issue: 
http://dev.opennebula.org/issues/1605  but it seems that we will have to 
wait up to release 4.0 to solve it.

I've tried manually deleting a VM with onevm delete ID and later 
manually deleting the VM instance folder/files (logs and disk) without 
success, because the VM appears again in the list of VMs with the same 
CLEANUP state. Would it be possible to manually remove the affected 
entries in the db and then reinstantiate the VM/template again? Any 
other idea?

I would need to get those VMs up and running.

Thanks in advance.
