ESXi persistance storage datastore failed

    Hi,

    ESXi scratch partition was set to a datastore which datastore has now failed and is permanently inaccessible.

    I see that vSAN is not a recommended persistance storage location for these logs.

    Should I set this to /scratch?

    Should this be a temporary measure,  I mean will the ramdisk get full after a short time and start to see issues?

    Asking as I recently moved one Host Scratch logs to /scratch and am now getting ramdisk 'root' is full

    How should I get rid of the datastore from the vSphere environment, just want to make sure it is unmounted/detached but in this case it is inaccessable so not sure which steps to follow?
