I am currently running VMware 5.0 that is connected to two different SANS through Mutiple iSCSI connections to different data stores that are created on the SAN, I have recently migrated all VMs over to one SAN, then I powered off the other SAN that the data was moved from just to see is any of the VMs would break. So far everything seems to be working find now I am ready to disconnect the SAN from VMware but I’m not sure the proper way to do this.

Unmount all the datastores.

Re-scan the storage Adaptor

Remove the IP Address from the Static IP address in the Storage Adaptor.

If you have made sure there is absolutely nothing on the datastores, you can go ahead and remove them.

Follow this below KB to do it according to best practices suggested by VMware
