I recently upgraded from ESX 3.5 to ESX 4.0. I upgrade Virutal center from 2.5 to vcenter 4.0. everything went well there. I then licensed the Vcenter Server. I then vmotioned off all vm's to one of 2 host servers, then proceed to upgrade the first host from #SX 3.5 to 4.0. I then once that was finished, vmotioned the vm's to the ESX 4.0 host and performed the upgrade of the other ESX host from 3.5 to 4.0. After that one came back online, I licensed both ESX hosted servers. Now I can't browse the datastore from Vcenter Server. Help

You may want to start by checking the permissions. Can you browse if you connect directly to the esx host with the client?

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

bqoering,

if I connect directly to the ESX host itself and not thru Vcenter server, it can see the datastore, but thru Vcenter server, not luck.
