- Server: Dell PowerEdge R510 (New, no previous OS installations)
- RAID Setup: RAID 10 totaling 1.64 TB
- VMware: ESX 5.0 update 1
While attempting to add storage on VMware esxi 5.0 I received the following error:
An error occurred during host configuration. Call “HostDatastoreSystem.QueryVmfsDatastoreCreateOptions” for object “ha-datastoresystem” on ESXi “xxx.xxx.xxx.xx″ failed. An internal error occurred in the vsphere client.
Procedure to Correct Issue
- From the console run command to get correct name of disk:
- From the console run:
partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/<disk name> msdos
- Now attempt to once again Add the Storage.
