Let's try this once again. My ESXi 6.5 installation has lost a volume and associated datastore, which housed 9 virtual machines. All 9 of the virtual machines are showing as "Invalid" in the GUI. Would like to try to recover the volume. Any recommendations on where to start?
Thanks for your help.
You must try to find why esxi lost communication with volume. Is it local, iscsi fc ?
If local, check if in BIOS disks are ok, and if esxi sees device
If iSCSI, check network, if esxi also sees devices.
If FC, just check if volumes are ok, cables, etc.
If esxi sees device, try to run some recovery tools, ie Hiren's Boot.
