VMWare ESXi 5.0 corrupt datastore?


I have the following ESXi version:

Vmware ESXi version 5.0.0
Build 469512

I am having with issues building Virtual Machines.

I got the error when trying to delete a directory from one of my datastores (VMFS 5.54)

Delete file Error caused by file /vmfs/volumes/4-eb24f66-62-e5e9b7-7b-4c-001517-64d158/ttroot

No VM's use this directory.

1. Any suggestions to delete this file?
2. Is there any way I can do an integertiy / file system check of that datastore?

So note I don't have vCenter.

you need vCenter to do a browse to datastore and then you can remove and add to the datastore I think
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
What file are you deleting? Its not in use? There is no integrity check foir VMFS.

Are you using a supported storage controller and server?

Check the VMware HCL (Hardware Compatability Lists) here

As you have no VMs on the datastore, I would select the datastore in Storage, Right Click it and select Delete if possible.
yes how are you building vm's without vcenter?
and why are you deleting a folder ? thats not a normal build vm task
