asked on 

flat-vmdk file remaining in datastore after vMotion

Esxi 6.0U3. Performed a storage vMotion on a vm to a different datastore.  After that was complete, I went to the old datastore and looked at the files. The flat-file.vmdk was still located in the OLD datastore. How can I move the flat-file or delete it? I am moving the vm to make better use of my SAN. I tried to copy it to the new location, but received an error from my vcenter. I don't understand why the flat-file.vmdk was even in with the vm files.

Please provide any guidance you can. The vm is a ldap server used with zimbra.

Thank you
