Use the following steps to remove the bundle(s) to free up space

1. Browse to bundle management section in the SDDC-Manager UI
2. Refine search to "Downloaded" only
3. Open the older bundle that is to be deleted to get the bundle id for step 6
4. Create a snapshot of the SDDC Manager VM
5. SSH to the SDDC Manager VM and change to the root user:


6. From the command line, issue the following command using the bundle id you got in step 3

python /opt/vmware/vcf/lcm/lcm-app/bin/ <bundle id>

Note: For VCF 4.4 and newer versions you could leverage the python script through PowerShell: KB 94760.
