    Cannot unmount or remove missing NFS Datastore

    netlib Hot Shot

      Using ESXi 5.5.  It used to have an NFS3 Datastore on a Windows Server that died.  So the Datastore shows up as inaccessible.  The Datastore was only used to hold ISO files that could be mapped to the virtual CD/DVD of a VM. There were never any virtual machines or virtual disks stored on it.


      I am trying to unmount the NFS Datastore, but I keep getting the message "Datastore is still in use".   I went to settings in each VM on the host to make sure that the virtual CD/DVD was not pointing to the Datastore.  But still no luck.


      Is there any way to remove a Datastore that no longer exists?
