Hi,

Please advise on error in Title (Call "HostDatastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreCreateOptions" for object "ha-datastoresystem" on ESXi "myhost" failed.

I get this when adding local disks to the ESXi. Tried to add them as VMFS5/VMFS3 but error remains the same.

Are these disks used e.g. contain an existing filesystem e.g. NTFS.

Sometimes if you add disks to ESXi which have been previosuly used, e.g. not wiped and blank, it cannot create a VMFS partition, because it cannot remove the existing partitions.

Put them in another computer, and wipe them using DBAN (http://www.dban.org/) and then try and add them.
