Datastores disappeared after a reboot



Had to shut down the host to put more memory in. The new memory is detected fine, but both my datastores disappeared, so I can’t bring the VMs back online.


Can’t figure out why this happened or how to fix it.

ESXi v5.5. Running off USB (mpx.vmhba32:C0:T0:L0)


Terminal outputs:
