DataStore error when I try to add
Posted on 2013-12-20
I have an ESXi 4.1 host that I have just built. It has 6 one TB drives. I have configured the array to have two arrays, running Raid 5 using 3 drives each. This provides for 2 1.8 TB Logical Drives.
When I added the first logical drive, everything went as normal and the 1.8 TB datastore was created. When I attempted to add the second logical drive, I get the following error.
Call "HostDatastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreCreateOptions" for object "datastoreSystem-143135" on vCenter Server "*****.********.com" failed.
I have removed the logical drive, removed the array and then added it back and still get the same error.
