Unmounted iSCSI datastore and can't bring it back


i had unmounted a iSCSI datastore and then deleted it from a test host.  How do I bring it back?  I went into the Software iSCSI (from Adapter tab) and removed the port binding group and re-added them back but no still no successful after rescan, etc.  When I browsed the datastore, it has an "X" with An error occurred, please try again.

From another host I can still access this datastore with actual files.

 

Thanks,

TT

Datastorebrowser is a sunny weather tool - when it fails that has almost no diagnostic value.
What does WinSCP say ?
What do you see when you browse the datastore via putty ?

On the impacted host, are the target IP's for the SAN correct? On your storage array is the volume still presented to the host?

Rebooting the host brought the datastore back.  Thanks for your input.
