Use this procedure to mount a previously unmounted datastore on a single host.

1

Log in to the vSphere Client and select the host on which to mount the unmounted datastore.

Note

If the datastore is shared, it will be mounted only on the host you select. It will remain unmounted on other hosts not specified in this procedure.

2

Click the Configuration tab and click Storage in the Hardware panel.

3

Right-click the datastore and select Mount.

Note

The datastore that is mounted on some hosts while being unmounted from others, is shown as active in the Datastores and Datastore Clusters view of the vCenter Server.
