VMware ESXi error – Failed to create VMFS datastore store

This note addresses the resolution of the error encountered during vmware datastore creation.

To resolve the issue, first connect to the VMware vSphere server via SSH.

First, the command s -lha /vmfs/devices/disks is run

The disks on the server are listed as above. The disk that we want to use as a datastore space and that we have problems with is naa. The tag in the format XXXXXXXXXXXXXX is copied. It is written and executed in the code specified below.

partedUtil setptbl /vmfs/devices/disks/naa.XXXXXXXXXXXXXX msdos

Then the datastore creation process is repeated. It has been observed that the problem has been solved.
