I am experiencing this exact situation.
[login to view URL]
I need someone that can login to my esxi 5.5 server remotely and repair the datastore, I can assist with anything you need me to do.
I accidentally pulled 2 drives from my raid when the server was still shutting down, damaging the datastore vmfs. ESXI still boots, but now it doesnt detect the datastore. I am not able to readd it.
