remove a disk on a VM.

I am trying to remove a disk on a VM that has multiple disks.  

I login to the VM, go to disk management>properties of that disk, the disk location shows
"Location 160 (Bus Number 0, Target Id 2, LUN 0)".

Looking at the harddisk properties from Vcenter, the virtual device node shows "SCSI (0:2) Hard Disk 3".  

Can I just remove the same disk from Vcenter without shutting the VM?

Yes, disks in VM, since Windows 2003, with VMware Tools installed are Hot Plug.

You can remove and add them when the VM is Powered ON.
