esxi 4.1 - help! datastore is inactive after hd pulled
Posted on 2015-01-29
Forgive me for this, but I am not the admin, just filling in. Drive 0 and Drive 1 in my dell r710 were mirrors of eachother. Drive 0 had a warning (amber light) so I replaced the hard drive with a new drive. I assumed because these drives were mirrored that it would rebuild, nothing happened. I assume I missed a step. I tried to reseat the Drive 1 (probably my biggest mistake) because now the datastore is inactive...this makes sense to me actually.
What I want to know, how do I get back online? How can I reactivate this datastore? I presume my data is fine, but the datastore is inactive now. I need some help with this.
