I had a volume named VMFS01 but I had to delete it for other issues. Now that I am readding it, the name is VMFS01 (1). Whenever I try to rename it it says that VMFS01 already exists.
How do I get the other ESX servers to forget about that name? I have rescanned the LUNS already.
IN VC You can goto Configuration | Storage | and if you see VMFS01. Select that one and goto properties and Click on Change
or you can try going to Service console and see if still exist in /vmfs/volumes/
if you see it there u can remove it
U can login onto the ESX server with putty console using root id then u can rename the folders on the path /vmfs/volumes/storage.
$ mv file dir1/file2
It's easy if u can work with bash shell.
