HP MSA P2000G3 ISCSCI configuration error

I have configured iSCSI adapter and I can see the storage. But not able to add as storage I am getting this error "Call "HostDatastoreSystem.CreateVmfsDatastore" for object "ha-datastoresystem" on ESXi "192.168.0.88" failed." error attached as well.
What could be the issue? What I am missing.
I restarted both host and storage but still no joy

Was the datastore you're trying to mount used for something else? Another filesystem or RDM for instance... That can sometimes cause these kind of errors, best is to wipe the disks clean before trying to use them as datastore.

#partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/<DISK-ID> msdos
This command didn't give any result.
Is that mean it is ok?

Did you replace <DISK-ID> with the correct ID of the disk you're trying to mount as datastore?

Probably not the correct drive that was changed then... Ok, good luck... Keep us posted.

Good question, something maybe got stuck with the previous atempt, sligh change in config, maybe the remaking of the Volume earlier didn't reflect through to the host... Difficult to say really.
