    Unplanned device loss is a condition that occurs when your ESXi host permanently loses connection to a storage device.

    Typically, unplanned device loss is unintentional and can occur when a storage device is unmapped, removed, or its unique ID changes, or when there is an unrecoverable hardware error.
    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.
