Disconnect Hardware FloppyDescription
Disconnects a virtual floppy drive of a powered-on virtual machine from its backing. The virtual device is still present and its backing configuration is unchanged, but from the perspective of the guest operating system, the floppy drive is not connected to its backing resource. For a powered-off virtual machine, the Floppy.update operation may be used to configure the virtual floppy floppy to start in the disconnected state when the virtual machine is powered on.

Virtual floppy drive identifier. The parameter must be an identifier for the resource type: com.vmware.vcenter.vm.hardware.Floppy.
