All shared Datastores Failed on the Host

Jump to solution

VMware ESXI 6.5

Running VMware vCenter appliance and on one of my ESXI 6.5 hosts I have this warning when I view the host

All Shared Datastores failed on the Host esxi-3

When browsing the datastores they are all there ad functional

Other then restarting the ESXI Host is there any way to clear this message?

Happy New Year

Tom

One thing that I could think about is if this alerts is on task and events or alert page, then try to acknowledge it and check .

Apart from this I dont think there is option . reboot is the only way .

Please consider marking this answer as correct and helpful if this helps you.

Gayathris,

No events or tasks listed about this.

I am guessing only a restart of the host will schedule that

Thank you,

FYI - rebooting does not clear the message - Hosts sees all data stores.

These are the messages I am working with:

The number of vSphere HA heartbeat datastores for this host is 0, which is less than required: 2

All shared datastores failed on the host colohpesxi05.alz-chicago.alz.org

No sollution yet

FYI - Solution for me was to remove the host from vCenter - add it back in - side effect was having to add the host back to the VDS and restablish the uplnks.
