This usually happens when you remove a host from the inventory, and there's a VM in the vCenter Server's inventory which points to that host's datastore.

Please check the existing VMs on vCenter Server for connections to that datastore (e.g. an ISO image configured on a VM's virtual CD-ROM drive). Once all references have been removed, you should be able to add the host again.
