Let's see if I can explain this. I have 2 enviornments, ESX 3.5 and ESXi 5. Both are connected to the same SAN storage. On 3.5, I have a VM that is using a single vmdk on a VMFS3 datastore. That datastore is comprised of 4, 500GB volumes on the SAN. So, in the datastore properties, it shows the 4 extents that make up the 2TB datastore.
I need to attach this datastore as it is to our new ESXi 5 system. I can easily detach from 3.5 and reattach to 5 on the SAN side, but from there, I'm not sure what I need to do to recreate this data store on ESXi 5. Hope that all makes sense, let me know if you need more information. Thanks.
