VMWARE 6.0 error

Hi Experts,

I wanted to mount an ISO file to my vcenter but it end in an error.
The ISO datastore is accessible and all file are in.

See the error here:

No, nothing else.
This happens after our move and IP change or maybe after upgrade to 6.0

I have found some more indicies....

The ISO datastore is the problem. I cannot upload and download.
I have created another folder called ISOs in my VM datastore and was able to upload a ISO.
And I was able to mount the ISO to a VM.

What can I do with the datastore ?

Because of the move we have halted and shutted down the NETAPP.

After the boot of the NETAPP I needed to change the permission the datastore to GRANT ROOT ACCESS TO ALL HOSTS.

I dont know why, because before the move it was working.
