Disappearing LUN storage on esxi

    I have an issue with disappearing LUN storage on esxi in version 6.0 and 6.5.

    I have a few serwers HP Proliant DL380 G6, G8 and G10 and all are connected via FC (through Brocade switches) to MSA2040.


    Problem is with this that partition are visible on all servers but sometimes on servers partision from MSA are disappearing, and they are disappearing all or for example three from five. I can add again those partition but when i do this all ma data will be wiped.

    I tried to rescan/refresh storage adapters from vSphere client and via ssh but it gave nothing.

    After restarting physical server all are back to normal and missing partition are visible again.

    It is possible to make partition visible and active without restarting phisical server?

    Best Regards
