Unable to increase size of datastore

Hello,

I have increased my LUN size on my HPE Nimble.  Then, from the vSphere web interface, I selected a host, clicked the Configuration tab, selected the datastore then right-clicked and selected Increase Datastore Capacity.  Then additional allotted space showed up in the wizard, selected that and completed.  However the added space still does not show up in vSphere.  Not sure what's happening.  Anyone else experience this?

Thanks,
Matt

Which vCenter, and host version/build do you currently use?

There've been issues with increasing datastores in the past. It looks like the rescan did not work properly on all hosts.

What worked for me was to run vmkfstools -V (note the upper-case "-V") from the command line on each host.
