Add Host Error  Datastore ListHi,
 I used to manage two ESXi hosts (192.168.1.2 & 192.168.1.8) in vCenter. After some updates, 192.168.1.2 failed to boot from USB flash drive, so I have to re-install ESXi USB drive again and add existing VMs to the inventory.
 Now I can access 192.168.1.2 by using IP address in VSphere client. So I decided to add it to vCenter. But when I tried to add 192.168.1.2 to the Datacenter, it generates an error message. Upon investigation, I found "datastore1 - TS3) " which belongs to 192.168.1.2 still shows up as "inaccessible". I tried to delete it, but I did not see that option.
 What can I do to manage192.168.1.2 in vCenter again?

Thanks.
