Virtual Machine Disks Appears Offline

Recently was working on the enhancement of my Home Lab by adding few more ESXi and I noticed something strange with one of my Virtual Machine running with Windows Server 2008 was showing the recently connected disks in offline mode.

So started troubleshooting and open the DISKPART and ran few commands, so as to ensure the disks are back online and I can use them for creating NFS share and further mount it as NFS datastore on my upcoming ESXi hosts.

As we can see Disk 0 was online and the other two disks were offline so selected the disk 2 by executing select disk 2 and running ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY which successfully cleared the disk attributes, next task in the list was to bring my Disk back online using ONLINE DISK.
