VMware ESX(i) 4.x/5.x VM seeing 2 datastores eventhough it has all the files in only 1 datastore.


Issue : After the svMotion of the VM to another datastore in the summary tab, under the datastore section of the VM the old and the new datastore are listed. All the disks and the files of the VM are in the new datastore and pointing to the new datastore. The svMotion was 100% successful.
Resolution: go to the edit settings of the VM, click on cd/dvd drive and unmount the iso image.
