How to move a datastore to a new host

Hi,

I am pretty new to VMWare and am struggling a bit with the topic shown above

We have multiple hosts and multiple datastores

Host 1 has a datastore called N20 Data and i would like for Host 4 to be able to access this

I have attached a screenshot of the properties of the datastore i would like to be accessed by host 4 but not sure how to get it to work

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi HayleighMann,

This datastore is on a SAN. So, you have to connect your Host 4 to the same SAN network and present it the corresponding LUN. Once the ESX will be able to reach it, just refresh your HBA and the VMFS formatted datastore should be seen by the host.

Present the LUN N20 Data to Host4 (from storage) and then rescan the storage adapter (HBA) on host4

In Vi client go to Configuration-Storage AdaptersRescan

After this Host4 will seen the datastore.
