I was getting disk read errors on a virtual server running on the host so I tried to move the VM to a different datastore ,after unregistering, it but got errors.
I then unregistered all other VMs so I could unmount the drive containing the datastore and remove it to carry out offline disk checking.
I have since replace the drive, and it is visible, but cannot find any help about remounting the datastore, it will only let me create a new one.
Does anybody have any ideas ?
