VMFS showing up in datastore; don't know how

Post by gossett » May 16, 2014 4:57 pm

I recently ran a test backup and a restore. This is what I did. I ran the backup then deleted the VM from inventory and did a restore. It worked. However now I have a strange 'vmfs-veeam01' datastore object that is unmounted and inaccessible. does anyone know 1.) how it could have been created by me somehow, 2) how to remove it. I think I can just unmounts it from the host but i'd really like to know what it is.
