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.
