Dell R720 I have upgraded from H310 to H710 raid card, my vdisks detect and auto imported over and I am able to see the disks in Windows, iDrac etc but ESXi no longer sees these? Do I need to edit the esx.conf like I had to do in order to repair "orphaned" nfs share. ESXi see's the raid card in the hardware tab.
You have to create a VMFS based Datastore.
If there is already a VMFS on that LUNs and your ESXi see these filesystems in the past than most likely he detect these datastore as snapshots. Please share a
Hi I have been following so many crappy KBs to restore my VMFS that I have probably destroyed it now and I am just going to restore from backups as to fix in ESXi is taking far too long and it's absolutely crap with dealing with orphaned devices/configs. The extents where not missing until I tried to rebuild the partition table as VMWARE KB said that could be a problem.
Sorry i cant help you with extends or mis-configurated partitiontable.
We are a Dell shop and performing FW upgrades is part of my job and i never loose a datastore.
