    Reconnecting disk to datastore after RAID array rebuild

    ellore Lurker

      Hello,

       

      Yesterday one of our ESX datastore drives died and was replaced. The datastore disk was a part of RAID5 and was rebuilt soon after, but ESX hasn't reconnected the disk to the datastore.

      On ESX GUI, I can see the disk and that it still has the data on it, but it is not connected to the datastore.

      esxcli storage vmfs extent list:

      Mount PointVolume Name
      UUIDMountedTypeSize
      Free
      datastore25795f52e-3d31e7e0-fc5d-5ef3fcdae3d3falseVMFS-unknown version00

      How can I set the mount point of the datastore to the replaced disk? It has a new ID and probably that's why it didn't connect to the DS automatically.
