      Hello all,

       

       

      i am looking for the command to do a rescan of the vmfs datastores attached to a specific ESX hosts.

       

       

      i allready found the command : esxcfg-rescan vmhba1

       

       

      But this results only in a rescan of attached lun's the the hba. And not in updating the vmfs datastore list.

       

       

      When you press rescan in VirtualCenter in the storage section, you will see two tasks: (this means there must be a seperate command for it)

       

       

      1) rescan hbas

       

       

      2) rescan datastores

       

       

       

       

       

      Anybody a clue for me ?
