All SSDs are showing ""Eligible for use by VSAN" but when i try to claim no disks showing.

Hi,

I recently deployed 3 vSAN nodes and try to configure vSAN but disks are not showing up.

      "Name"     : "naa.600605b00d744e70249c03f61cbc036f",

      "VSANUUID" : "",

      "State"    : "Eligible for use by VSAN",

      "Reason"   : "None",

      "IsSSD"    : "1",

"IsCapacityFlash": "0",

      "IsPDL"    : "0",

   {

      "State"    : "Ineligible for use by VSAN",

      "Reason"   : "Has partitions",

   {

ESXi version is below.

# vmware -v -l

VMware ESXi 6.7.0 build-10302608

Can someone help me to figure out this issues? I tried to find but no luck with googling.

Thank you.

Louis

Hello Louis,

Welcome to Communities.

When you say the disks are not showing up do you mean in Disk Management when you try to configure a Disk-Group in the GUI(s)?

If so then the first thing to validate is that the vCenter is also on 6.7 U1 or later - this is a common issue that I wrote a short kb about:

VMware Knowledge Base

If this is the case then you can easily confirm this and workaround the issue by creating the Disk-Group via the CLI.

If vCenter is 6.7 U1/2 then I would start by looking at other factors such as are the devices marked as Local and as SSD/HDD (where applicable):

Mark Devices as Local

Mark Devices as HDD

Mark Storage Devices as Flash

Thank you very much Bob!! I have updated vCenter and all disks are showing as expected.

The previous version was vCenter Appliance 6.7 (6.7.0.10000) and now updated to latest one 6.7.0.31100.

All good now, thank you again!

Louis
