I am mounting the snapshot on the same ESX server where original volume is online so I always resignature the volume.It creates the new datastore.
When I want to remove datastore then I do following operation.
1. Unmap the clonec lun from filer
2. Delete the cloned lun.
3. rescanall operation on ESX server
As we have resignatured the volume I am not UnmountVMfsvolumes() operation. After all this I am getting dead path issue. still the disk entry showing in the vi client and status as "Dead". This is kinda critical as it needs the reboot of the ESX server currently.
Correct me If the steps above are wrong.
I will be really thankful if someone can help on this.
