Have a VM deployed from template.  Shut VM down, and migrated VM to new datastore I created on my Nimble storage array.  VM shows that it is connected to both datastores, when I know I migrated VM to the new datastore I created.  I looked in the older datastore that I migrated away from, and there is nothing in that datastore that would somehow keep the connection with the new VM.

Does the template have a connected CD drive to the old datastore?

Funny you should write that!  I just fixed it on my own by Googling that a bit and found and answer.  But since you were right too, I'll give you the points.  Thanks for the quick response.
