vCenter not detecting addition of space to a datastore. Datastore is on a SAN, carved out as a LUN on a VNX 5300. I increased the LUN from the VNX5300. unable to see any changes in vcenter.

Re-scan the HBA any changes ?

Has the LUN changed sized presented to ESXi host ?

Select Properties of the datastore and select Increase and follow the wizard ?

Because it's NOT AUTOMATIC!!!!

The two systems are complete isolated!!!

Unless you have all the logic and plugins in vCenter Server and Expand and drive from there!
