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

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 vRealize Automation.

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