    Hi,

    I ran into a datastore connection problem. The error is "The vmware ESX server does not have persistent storage".

    And I have rescan and reboot the esx, the problem still exist.

    when I use the command "esxcfg-vmhbadevs", I only found my local disk and can't find vmfs datastore with HBA cards....

    # esxcfg-vmhbadevs

    Skipping lun: vml.0000000000. SysinfoException: Node (VSI_NODE_storage_scsi_lun_info) ; Status(bad000d)= Invalid name; Message= Unable to get Int

    vmhba3:0:0 /dev/cciss/c0d0

    Are there anyone know how to get the vmfs datastore back?

    Check your HBA and connection to SAN.

    I will check my HBA and the connection to san and will update you.

    My SAN is FC SAN.

    Sure that your HBA are in HCL?

    Cause seems that they are not recognized...
