Just added a new Host to my VSphere 5.1 installation which has a FibreCard, this has been detected OK but the VSphere client doesn't detect the existing datastores.

They are all visible on the other hosts, The fibre switch shows the host as connected.

In VShpere, for the new host - > configuration -> Storage Adaptors -> select the new the new FC and then Re-scan and nothing appears.

Any suggestions.
