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?
Can you please post a screen shot of what you are referring to?
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
