      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 ?
