Existing iSCSI LUNs attached but datastore shows "Not Consumed"

We have some new Dell servers that are being added to our environment.  The configuration matches that of the existing servers - in ESXi, network switch, and on the NetApp NAS - and doing a scan based on dynamic or static discovery results in the list of paths and devices as expected, however they don't show in inventory and checking in devices they all show as "Not Consumed" in the datastore column.

These are all installed with the custom image: DellEMC Custom Image for ESXi 6.7U3 Install CD

Does anyone have any ideas on this?  I have been racking my brain and not found any solutions doing searches.

In case that the storage is connected via iSCSI with Jumbo Frames, please double check the iSCSI VMkernel ports, and the vSwitch(es) to confirm that the MTU size is configured properly.
