ESX 3i Cannot remove inactive nas storage from esx host
Posted on 2009-04-17
Sometimes ago I added a NAS Storage (NFS) into my esx. This nas storage had the function to contain ISO image.
One day I had to put down the NAS Storage for Maintanance, indeed I added more Disk to create more storage space. once I put the NAS online the ISO Storage from the ESX side was not mounted automatically anymore and was shown as inactive. The mount path has changed now and I re-mounted the nes path.
The problem is that on ESX still show the old path mounted but inactive. If I go to the remove button I get an error that says error during the host configuration: nfs error: unable to unamout filesystem: busy.
I cannot reboot the esx as there are all the VM running and we do not have another host where I could temporary move the machine. How can I solve it?
It is possible to SSH to ESX? If yes how because I tried but I cannot. Maybe going to command shell I can unmount the filesys from there.
Help will be much apprecited
