I was just wondering, did anyone ever find the root cause of this issue?

Mine still seems to be doing the same thing, is it a permission issue or a bug?

There were three steps I did to remove the disk images, I'm sure there's
a 100% easier solution..:

I found the easiest way (graphically) was go to your
https://ovirtengine/api/disks and so a search for the illegal disk.
Append the extra ID eg. <diskhref="/api/disks/lk342-dfsdf...

into your URL this'll give you your image ID.

Go to your storage share:
cd /data/storage-id/master/vms/storage-id
grep -ir 'vmname' *
You'll find the image-id reference here too.

Then the image you will want to remove is in the
I assume you could safely remove this whole folder if you wanted to
delete the disk.

To remove the illegal state I did it through the API so again with the
URL above https://ovirtengine/disks/disk-id send a DELETE using HTTP/CURL

Again, this was a poor mans solution but it worked for me.

    I have another hopefully simple question.

    One VM that I am trying to remove says that it's disk state is
    "illegal" and when I try to remove the disk it says that it failed
    to initiate the removing of the disk.

    Is there an easy way to get rid of these illegal disk images?
