We are in process of moving all of our Virtual Machines off one of our SANs and we have an oddity with one of the VMs. It's a small Windows 2012 VM that has no special characteristics.
When you look at the Datastore connectivity for this VM, it reports connectivity to two Datastores:
The xio_dev01 Datastore is one of the ones that we are transitioning from and is on the old SAN. The xio2_vm_prod09 Datastore is on the newer storage array.
When you try migrate the storage of the VM, it looks like this:
As you can see, the Config File and both vDisks are in the proper place.
So that looks right. So what is still on the xio_dev01 Datastore? No snapshots either.
When we browse the contents of the xio_dev01 Datastore, you don't see any folder for that VM.
This behavior continues even when you make a clone of the VM or Storage vMotion the VM it to another Datastore, specifying a different Datastore.
The next step is to power down / power up the VM, we'll see what happens.
Anyone seen this before?

Sigh. Yes. Thank you.
There was a Content Library on the xio_dev01 Datastore that it used to connect to. I changed the VM Settings to Datastore .ISO and it dropped.
Thanks for the boost.
