I had an ESXi 6.5 install with drives attached running fine. I attempted to upgrade to 6.7 and this failed. I then decided to do a fresh install of 6.7 which went without issue (the storage drives were untouched during the upgrade/install - I installed on a USB stick).
I thought it would see my existing hard drives but it is only seeing one. I can see the physical drives in the vSphere client and the VMFS partitions are still on them.
How do I go about importing them back into the new build? I've read about issuing a new signature but all the articles relate to a iSCSI setup. This is local storage on a single host.
Thanks in advance. I'd really like my VM's back!
I've sorted this out now.
I had to issue a
esxcli storage vmfs snapshot list
esxcli storage vmfs snapshot resignature --volume-label=xxx
This made them visible and I could then pull back my VMs!
