Heartbeat Datastore list Empty:

I have one shared datastore. In Vsphere HA, if I click on Heartbeat Datastore I see by default this option selected :
"Use datastores from the specified list and complement automatically if needed"

I am not sure why the above option is by default though it makes sense to me that the option below should be by default:
"Automatically selected datastores accessible from the Hosts"

I also do not see the Shared Datastore listed.

Any help ?

thank you

Try adding another shared datastore, because the minimum for HA datastores is 2.

It suggests that HA does not like the current datastores hence they are not available for selection because HA by default will allocate 2 datastores.

and it usually gives a warning if no datastores are available, or you do not have at least 2.
