If a VVOL datastore has multiple FlexVols, you can remove one or more of them from the datastore without deleting the datastore. A VVOL datastore continues to exist as long as it has at least one FlexVol.
- From theVMware vSphere Web Client Home page, click Hosts and Clusters.
- Right-click the datastore and select .
The Remove Storage from VVOL Datastore dialog box appears.
- Select the FlexVols that you want to remove from the VVOL datastore, and click Remove.
A dialog box asks whether you want to remove the storage.
- Click OK.
A success message tells you the storage has been successfully removed from the VVOL datastore.
Note: If you select all the FlexVols, an error message appears indicating the operation will fail.
