    Hello, we have a vmware esxi host running a couple of vm’s. One of the vms became unreaponsive so I gave that vm a reset, but dit not come online.

    When I looked at the storage I noticed that the datastore was not online- The vmhba is displaying dead path state. The othe vms are stil runnig. I believe the call this a PDL state?

    I have an article (vmware kb) that is suggestibg to shutdown all vms and unoutkng the datastore. The doing a scan and mout the store again.

    What is the risk of all vms are down after this procedure. Or is there another simple solution?
