Log into the host with the vSphere Client if not already, click on the COnfiguration tab -> Storage -> Add Storage link. Choose Disk/LUN, then you will (should) see your disk to add it as a datastore.

Is this just a single 2TB disk?

You may need to first instead go to "Storage Adapters" and do a rescan of your adapters, then go to Storage and add the storage.
