Unmounting a datastore backup

You can unmount a datastore backup when you no longer need to access the files in the datastore.

Steps

  1. In the VMware vSphere web client GUI, click in the toolbar, and then select Storage from the drop-down list.
  2. In the left Navigator pane, right-click a datastore, then select NetApp SnapCenter in the drop-down list, and then select Unmount in the secondary drop-down list.
    Attention: Make sure that you select the correct datastore to unmount. Otherwise, you might cause an impact on production work.
  3. In the Unmount Cloned Datastore dialog box, click the Unmount the cloned datastore option, and then click Confirm.
