VM inaccessible after putting VSA into maintenane mode and rebooting cluster members

I just recently deployed a two member VSA cluster.  No production VM's are in it yet..  My test VM shows inaccessible after putting VSA in maintenance mode and rebooting the two cluster members.  I can remove from inventory and add it back.. But.. Why do I have to do this?  The procedure I used to reboot the cluster members was putting the VSA in maintenance and them rebooting each ESXi host.  Very urgent that I figure out why this is going on.

When the storage (VSA) was back online, did the VM not appear again, e.g. change from inaccessible?

It is normal if storage disappears from the host, which stores the VMs for them to become inaccessible.

The storage shows to be online.  I don't see any errors..  but.. The VM never shows to be accessible unless I remove from inventory and add it back.

It seems that they come back online eventually.  I just wasn't waiting long enough.
