Re: How to properly unpresent/remove LUN from Vmware.

Thanks for the quick reply. Could you explain what you mean by unmount volume? Also, i'm under the impression that once i remove a LUN from one host, the removal will replicate across all hosts since it's technically shared storage. The same idea applies when you create a new volume, you only do it once on a single host, and rescan HBA's on all other hosts to see the newly added LUN.

Also, i would imagine i would need to remove the datastore then REMOVE IQN access on the array BEFORE i rescan storage on all hosts. If the IQN is still part of the array, the rescan would still pick up the volume on the hosts for which IQN access is configured and granted...at least that's my thought and I could be wrong.
