Can't add local storage after change raid config :(

Hallo , I have a server running esx 5.5 with two virtual disk (the first RAID 1 , Seccond RAID 5) local storage.

I change the seccond RAID to Raid 10. Restart my server.

Go to : Add the storage, Storage Type Disk/LUN, Select Disk/LUN : I see the serial attached SCSI Disk ( Path ID ... , LUN 2, Non SSD, 2.73 TB ) ,

Next , VMFS-5, Current disk layout : ... The hard disk is blank ,

NEXT , : "Call "HostDatastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreCreateOptions" for object "ha-datastoresystem" on ESXi "130.0.5.2" failed." .

The storage before was bigger in size 4.5 TB (Raid 5). I have also a SAN with 3 LUN's connected to the ESX via iSCSI.

Does somebody know why I can't add my local storage after I just change the raid config ?  TX !

Found the answer :

1. Connect SSH to the esx

2. partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/<disk id> msdos
