Datastore conflicts with an existing datastore when trying to add a ESX 6.7 hosts into a VCenter cluster.
This happened when I applied the lastest non-critical and critical patches to ESXi host 6.7U3. The VM's were moved to another hosts and the hosts rebooted but it was in disconnected state and when I went to try to connect it to the VCenter cluster after 15 minutes, I got the "Datastore conflicts with an existing datastore" error.
I removed the hosts from the inventory and tried again but got the same error. It did notify me of the database in conflict but the vm1 numbers for the datastore naa on all hosts is the same.
3 x ESXi Hosts 6.7 (2 are in the cluster). The third is the one I am trying to re-add.
I have the following enabled:
VSphere DRS On
VSphere HA On
VM EVC Disabled
Storage Cluster Manual Mode
VSphere Storage DRS On
What is the recommended procedure to re-add the hosts and clean up the Datastore conflict.
