Hi Brent
I suggest you to change state of the VM to Stopped from database.
This action enables you to try destroy VM again fron UI.

</div>Hello, I have an issue were a number of vms are in "Expunging" state and
have been for days. The KVM host they lived on crashed and isnt coming
back. I had to force remove the host from the cluster. This left the vms in
the CloudStack Manager in a destroyed state. 24hrs later they moved to
"Expunging" state and have been there since. (~3days now)

From within the CloudStack manger, there is no option to do anything with
them because they are in "Expunging" state.

How do I get rid of these entries?
