I tried hundreds of forums and posts, but nothing seem to help!
I have vSphere ESXi 5.5. and when starting ESXi the first time it created and formatted a storage automatically.
For some reason I removed it and now I cannot get my disks/storage back! No problem if I need to reformat but even that is impossible !
I tried to reuse it, to format it, whatever possible, but nothing is working:
The only message I get is : Error: Read-only file system during write on /dev/disks/naa.(...) !
For example :
# partedUtil mklabel /dev/disks/naa.600605b009a647b01c5ed73926b7ede1 msdos Error: Read-only file system during write on /dev/disks/naa.600605b009a647b01c5ed73926b7ede1 WriteNewPtable: Unable to commit to device /dev/disks/naa.600605b009a647b01c5ed73926b7ede1 partedUtil delete partition gives the same message.
partedUtil setptbl gives the same message.
fdisk (delete, new partitions, write) is of no use.
# partedUtil getptbl /dev/disks/naa.600605b009a647b01c5ed73926b7ede1 gpt 1215155 255 63 19521474560 1 63 8386622 EBD0A0A2B9E5443387C068B6B72699C7 linuxNative 0 2 8386623 13629502 9D27538040AD11DBBF97000C2911D1B8 vmkDiagnostic 0
Really, after trying more than 30 hours, I don't know anymore what to do ?
Any help would be very much appreciated...
