Datastores Missing from VSC 2.1.1


We recently deployed a pair of FAS3240's and have installed VSC 2.1.1 on our vCenter server.

We are running vCenter 5.0 and vSphere 5 hosts.

We created 4 NFS volumes, 2 on each controller.  Each controller has 2 IP addresses, a primary and and alias IP.

We are only seeing 2 of the 4 datastores under Monitoring and Host Configuration, Storage Details - NAS.  The datastores were all created with the using the NetApp plug-in in vCenter. 

Any reason why we'd only be seeing 2 out of 4 under "Storage Details - NAS" in VSC 2.1.1?

Here's a screenshot of VSC 2.1.1:

Here's the storage config on a host showing all 4 datastores:



Anyone know if this issue has been resolved in VSC 4.0? I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the release notes or admin guide.


That specific bug (546197) is fixed in VSC 4.0.
