ESXi6 Store missing


Recommended Posts

Morning All,


Hope someone can help...


I swapped RAID cards from an LSI 9261 to a 9260 flashed as a Dell Perc H700 to test. On switching back to the original card I was prompted with the controller stating to import a foreign config which it did....


ESXI 6 starts though there is no persistent storage and as such no datastore. The previous VM's are listed under the host as /vmfs/volumes/<uid>


Under - Configuration/Devices the two logical partitions are shown - the 160Gb which held the datastore and a 5tb RDM.


Is there a way to get ESXI to "re-see" what was there?


using Search for datastores completes in seconds with no positive result


many thanks

I am no expert but sounds like the drivers and as such has overwritten the driver, you will prob have to import the driver back again manually for the LSI 9261 using SSH and esxcli .vib or .zip commands.
