Removing Inaccessible NFS datastore in vSphere 6.7.0

I have a NFS datastore that is no longer accessible. Didn't have anything on it but I can't unmount it.  When I do I get the message:

The resource 'BU1' is in use.
Cannot remove datastore 'BU1' because "system swap is enabled on it". Correct the problem and retry the operation.

I don't recall putting anything on it, much less enabling it for system swap.  ?

6.7.0 w/ VCSA.
