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:


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


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


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