Missing Datastores after upgrade from ESXi 5.1 to ESXi 6.0

Hello peoples

I have just upgraded our ESXi 5.1 to ESXi 6.0, and can no longer see our Datastores.

Its 2 x iSCSI LUNS to our Dell SAN.

You can see images her:

I have access to the Storage/Devices, but not the Datastores.

The datastore configuration should look like:

Hi,

Did you apply the latest drivers for the NICs??

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?

Check if this can help https://kb.vmware.com/kb/1011387

Note: Use this careful so you dont delete any data from those LUNs

hope this can help
