virtual machines in datastore view are wrong

This is wierd. If I go into the virtual infrastrcuture client and click the drop down list in the top left hand corner that switches the views between inventory, virtual machines and templates,networks and datastores

and selcect datastores

and then click virtual machines in the right hand pane

It shows running virtual machines that are not actually runnin on that particluar datastore...

Why is this?

thanks,

Paul

could It be that they have a iso file mounted as cdrom?

My machines that have that, shows up on my "iso" datastore as well as the datastore the vm is running from

I think exhosting has hit the nail on the head - I will bet if you check the vm configuration they are configured with an cd pointing to an ISO image sitting on this datastore
