I have a HP Micro server at home. There are 4 4TB disk in it. I had a power failure and then the ESXI 5.5 wouldn't boot anymore. So I downloaded the image again and did an upgrade and now it boots again but my datastores are gone. I see in the Var/log/vmkernel.log that there is still something there because a vm that was running gives an error. I see the VM name in the error.

I also have this error:

Any advice ?
Ok, so let's see what may cause this.
To start with, please provide some details about your setup:
After going into the Raid Setup and restarting one more time. (did multiple restarts already)
I am seeing the datastore again. I don't know why. Because I didn't applied anything in the raid setup.
(the outputs are from before the startup)
Thank for your effort André.
