When you are logged in to an ESXi host with the VMware Host Client, you can clear the partition table of a disk device that is accessible from the host.

Before you begin

Verify that the device is not in use by ESXi as boot disk, VMFS datastore, or vSAN.

Procedure

  1. Click Storage in the VMware Host Client and click Devices.
  2. Right-click a device from the list, click Clear partition table and click Yes.

    Clearing the partition table might cause data loss.
