Removal of Flex-IO datastore fails, I can't remove datastore from the host. The datastore is not accessible.
Inactive Flex-IO datastore in Virtual Center's inventory
Verify that your Flex-IO VM is already removed/powered down.
Verify that there are no orphaned or existing VM's on the "inactive" Flex-IO datastore
Reboot the host and try to remove the datastore again using Flex-IO administration page.
Note: When Step 1 fails, and Flex-IO datastore has orphaned replica VM tied to datastore, proceed to Step 2.
- Remove the host from Virtual Center's inventory
- SSH to the ESX host (where Flex-IO VM was installed)
- Log in as "root"
- Run this command in the SSH console:
- esxcli storage nfs remove –v <NFS datastore name>
Note: <NFS datastore name> is usually: "Flex-IO-Host_name_here"
Note: To SSH to ESX host is "Putty" found here.
