    Datastore is not appering (no volumes for existing datastores)

    Brensted Lurker

      Hi everyone,


      Currently we a running standalone configuration of StarWind Software with iSCSI Datastore on 2 hosts (1 storage host connected to 2 ESXi host via iSCSI)

      We faced an issue:

      Existing datastores are missing volumes after several reboots, all iSCSI paths are connected and devices is showing properly.

      partedUtil getptbl /vmfs/devices/disks/<device-name>

      Shows that partition is fine.

      However esxcfg-volumes -l shows us nothing. Apparently, datastore is a missing a volume.

      We cant browse a datastore and it not appearing in datastores tab.


      And the question is how to restore a volume without a data loss? Is there any chance to restore the data from that partition or move it.


      Appreciate for any assistance.

      Thanks in advance.
