Vmware datatore delet and remove from storage question

I have created a lun for testing from storage and I finished my VM testing. Now I deleted the volumes from, OS and removed it from VM.  I want to know the proper way to remove the LUN. Can I now go ahead and delete the datastore, and then delete the LUN?

Yep...as long as no needed VMs or data is on it. Just rt-click on it and select Delete (NOTE: this operation wipes all data off it). Once deleted from your Host/vCenter, you can then remove the LUN on your SAN if you want.
