When attempting to add a Data Store to a hypervisor in the UI, the Data Store does not appear in the drop down list. Why?
LVM/SAN Data Stores
If a Data Store is supposed to be shared but has a "No" in the shared column, then it can't be added to any other hypervisors.
Go to https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/settings/data_stores
- Edit Data Store
- Make sure "Local Hypervisor" is blank.
- Make sure the Data Store is enabled.
If the storage is local to the hypervisor, then it cannot be shared by simply modifying this setting.
If the datastore is OnApp Integrated Storage and the HV is not in the same zone then it isn't accessible for use by that HV anyway.
