I have an equallogic san that i removed some vm's from and I thought I removed the VMDKs from also. However, in the devices view of the hardware storage on the configuration tabs of the hosts, there are 2 iscsi disks with an operational state of dead or error. How can I remove these?

Have you dismounted the LUN correctly?

are you referring to the iSCSI LUNs have been removed, leaving with path as Dead or Error?

Can you select the datastore, and select unmount?

Have you retried Re-scanning Storage?

i probably did not dismount correctly. I am referring to your second question. That is my problem.
