Can’t delete dataset, device busy

Just upgraded my home esxi server from 5.5 to 7.0, simply installed 7 on a new USB and rebooted.

Have moved all the data and vms off each dataset then deleted, recreated it and also upgraded the vms.

All went well apart from one dataset which will not delete saying it’s busy.

I’ve removed the dumpfiles and made sure each VM is not trying to access a CD-ROM iso on it but it just won’t delete.

My next step is booting a Ubuntu USB and wiping it that way but any ideas how to see why esxi thinks it’s busy?

Yesterday I spent 3 hours trying to delete it but of course I’m no VMware expert!
