Are any VMs on that Datastorees?? If yes, are they still running?? If yes, check this: VMware KB: LUNs attached to VMware vSphere 6.0 hosts may remain in APD Timeout state after paths hav...

If you rescan do you get anything?? Did you check the logs(/var/log/vmkernel.log) after the rescan to check any issues?

hope this can help
