datastore for disk not found disk will be ignored message vmware 6.0

Hello, we lost power to our esx + san environment, and my backups have been failing on VEEAM. I went into vmware, and saw this message, however the disk is attached in the VM. How do i fix this?

Hello,

Valid if the datastore where the VM is hosted are all vmdk that belong to that server.

Validate that the datastore is connected to all ESXi hosts.

Additional in the VM of Veeam Backup, go to the configurations of the VM and verify that it has not attacked any disk of another server. If you have another disk connected from another vm, disconnect it.

Regards..

check the datastore for the missing virtual machine disk ?

Is the SAN even presenting the LUN? You have to look at the SAN management console to see that.

select the disk and click on remove disk the virtual machine, click on ok and validate if the message disappears.

Why would i want to remove the disk?
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE Fellow)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
Check at the shell if the file exists eg vmdk
RAFAIT CONSULTANTCommented:
you are going to remove the disk from the vm, if the vm of the veeam backu has a disk of a different vm connected.

this happens when the veeam backup initiates the backup process on the servers that you configured for the backup tasks.

and when it finishes the backup process it does not release the disk of the vm that it is backing up, if you want to share images to see it better.

Please do not remove any disks at this time!

You state the disk is there?

Did you check it’s on the datastore using ESXi shell?
Cobra25Author Commented:
Yes disk is in the VM fine. I cant believe ppl would suggest to remove a disk!
RAFAIT CONSULTANTCommented:
If you do not have another disk connected from another vm, then it is not necessary to remove the disk.

Yes disk is in the VM fine

what do you mean by this, you can see all the data on this 4TB disc in the Guest vM ?
Cobra25Author Commented:
Yes correct.
