We have an issue with our ESXi 5.0.0 which is linked to our Dell EqualLogic SAN. According to vShere our datastore has 0 bytes free, however our Dell EqualLogic says the volume has 100Gb free.

We tried rescanning the datastore to see if that gives us the correct amount of space and nothing, is there anything we can do to get it to rescan the store?

ESXi uses a VMFS LUN - this LUN could be zero, because you've not re-sized the LUN..

Have you created a new LUN, to use this 100GB space?

100GB is not a lot left, and if you use UP all your storage on your SAN, it will email you every few hours a day!
