I noticed a strange problem. I have 2 Shared Datastored OS_VMFS1 and OS_VMFS2 coming from Clariion CX4-120 each of 536G.
I'm able to view both the data stores from vSphere client just fine. However when I use the vCLI one of the DataStore OS_VMFS1 is not visible.
[vi-admin@aisjmvma01 ~]$ vifs $esx01 -S
Just checked from another WinXP 32bit host with vSphere CLI Installed and the DataStore is still not visible. So, I guess this is not specific to VMA.
Just to confirm, I even deleted and re-created the VMFS that is not appearing in vifs -S.
