    I believed the correct answer are C & D

    Problem
    Although the ESXi host cannot determine the reason for a device loss (C) , the host supports the loss detection.
    When the device becomes permanently unavailable, ESXi receives sense codes from storage arrays and
    recognizes that the device is permanently lost, not just temporarily unavailable. ESXi marks the device as not
    connected and a warning about the device being permanently unavailable appears in the VMkernel log file.

    Solution
    If you experience an unplanned device loss condition, you must unmount any related datastores and perform
    a storage rescan to remove the persistent information associated with the device (D). See the following topics:

    D is really the correct answer. Regardless of what the documentation says, these are dumb machines. They will never be able to determine why there is a device loss or if it were planned.

    This shows either a lack of english comprehension by the people who wrote this question, or a lack of understanding of technology. We have not quite reached the technological level of I,Robot!
