They did some storage firmware updates and now I get this message:

vmware the storage backing virtual disk .vmdk has permanent device loss

Looks like a datastore is down.  Is there a way to fix from the command line?

if this is a SAN, you will need to check, if it's still presented on the SAN?

is this iSCSI or FC ?

Hi,
Just check following things
Go to Storage adepter > Select the HBA Card > check at the path colum  is it showing any lun maped over there ?
Try to rescan HBA card and IF LUN's are not showing at HBA card then there is some issue with the Storage Zoning.
Else issue should get resolve post rescan of HBA card.
