Re: How to gracefully remove a Nimble Datastore from ESXi & delete the volume from Nimble...

Assuming you are still seeing devices, keep following steps from the KB.  Use esxcli storage core device detached list to list detached devices and  esxcli storage core device detached remove -d EUI_ID  to remove detached devices.  Also confirm the initiator groups from the array have been removed from the volumes.  Rescan from the ESXi host.

OR... the next time, just use Nimble vCenter Plugin!  This makes deleting a VMFS datastore from ESXi hosts a breeze with one click!
