Last Modified: 2012-05-12
hi all,

I have SAN which connecting to 2 physical machines. Each physical machine is running ESX version 4.1 and i manage my virtual hosts via vcentre.

I was having a problem with my SAN (controller) which already fixed. How do i force my virtual hosts to detect the storage again?

At the moment, i cant do anything with the virtual hosts as it hangs and when i go to open console it just comes up as blank screen.

Please help.. Panick mode :(
