I followed this vmware guide to remove a storage device and replace with another. Everything worked fine apart from the fact the the datastore still show on the list as inactive. During the procedure I'm supposed to:
- unmount the datastore
- detach storage device
- make sure it detached with
esxcli storage core device detached list
- permanently remove device config with
esxcli storage core device detached remove -d naa.xxxx
I had another one to remove and managed to figure out how to do it correctly by adding another step after 2
2.1 Click inactive datastore -> Actions -> Delete Datastore
Does anybody know how to remove this inactive ghost datastore? I actually want to use the same name for the new datastore so can't really turn my blind eye on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
