If you are decommissioning a storage path and moving machines to a new one, a fabric administrator must disable the storage path in vCloud Automation Center.

The following is a high-level overview of the sequence of steps required to decommission a storage path:

1

A fabric administrator disables the storage path on all reservations that use it. See Disable a Storage Path.

2

Move the machines to a new storage path outside of vCloud Automation Center.

3

Wait for vCloud Automation Center to automatically run inventory data collection or initiate inventory data collection manually. See Configure Compute Resource Data Collection.
