How to properly unpresent/remove LUN from Vmware.

My environment: EQL PS4000XV. VMware 4.1 on 3  hosts. MEM kit installed and activated on all three hosts. HIT/ASM not activated for vSphere.

I have a LUN (volume) created and access setup based by iqn. I need to delete this volume to recapture some space. Since it's presented in VMware and formated for VMFS, what's the recommended best practice for gracefully removing this LUN (volume) ?

Verify it's not attached to any gues vms.

Delete from a single VM host 

remove IQN access on EQL volume

rescan HBA's on all hosts

confirm LUN/volume is gone

delete volume in EQL 

Looking forward to your feedback.

H.
