To delete VCB FULLvm backups from BA Client

How can we delete a fullvm backup in TSM version 6.1 from a BA Client, it shows the filespace as:

# Last Incr Date Type File Space Name
--- -------------- ---- ---------------
1 00/00/0000 00:00:00 TSMVFS VMFULL

The BA GUI doesn't show any option for deleting the VCB Fullvm, is there a command line method available?

This didn't work for me in TSM 6.2 client.
The problem was I had a mix of VCB and vStor backups on the same node and the VCB one's didn't go into a inactive state.
The command above gave me a "ANS1302E No objects on server match query"
The following worked to list and delete backups before 02/28/2011:
del group {VMFULL}\TSM\VMFULL\* -ina -pick -pitd=02/28/2011
