For some reason I cannot add my iSCSI storage to my list of datastores in ESXI 5.1.
This was working until I removed the iSCSI datastore and adapter from vsphere client. I needed to increase the size of my iscsi drive. In order to do that, I had to remove the iSCSI datastore & adapter, increase the size I'm allocating on the external iSCSI drive itself, then go re-add it like I did originally. Seemed pretty simple to me.
I'll attach 3 screenshots to show what the problem is.
In screenshot 1, you can see if I pick "add storage" my iSCSI LUN is not listed as a choice to mount. This is where I'm confused! Because you'll see in the next 2 screenshots that the iSCSI is connected and available.
Screenshot 2 shows my Storage Adapter configuration. All looks good! iSCSI connected and working.
Screenshot 3 shows if I click on Storage, then view by Device (instead of datastore) my iSCSI is present and available.
So if it looks good to go, why can't I add it as a datastore? I've re-scanned, rebooted the host vm, and the external iscsi device. I wonder if this has to do with me removing then re-adding?
Thanks! Hey, hanccocka, you need more points, right?!?!
