Case # 01982357
I just noticed I have many LUNs on my NetApp array that have no connected initiators. When my backups run I do see 2 of them connect but the others appear to be old and unused.
These are only visible in NetApp System Manger under LUNs - they do not show in VMware.
Names like "Veeam_Datastore_a1_Backup" "Veeam_Datastore_a1_Backup1", all the way to "Veeam_Datastore_a1_Backup6". I created a support case but while I am waiting to hear back I wanted to check and see if other NetApp users are seeing the same thing. Maybe this is normal?
Were these a result of failed backup jobs or recover from snapshot jobs perhaps months ago? Am I able to safely offline and delete these LUNs?
