If you perform a Re-SCAN in the iSCSI Storage Adaptor, do them come back?

do you need them to be mounted and available ?

I assume this is shared storage iSCSI ?

have you checked on the SAN, the mappings are still correct ?

how did this error occur ?

Ya its shared iSCSI storage, mappings are correct and working fine with two ESXi Host without any problem and one VM is also running. But somehow its "Inactive" with other 4 ESXi hots.

Do those ESXi hosts have other datastores mapped and connected to the same iSCSI SAN ?

Moved working VM to another datastore and Dismount/Mount on datastore solved the problem.
