VMware NFS datastores inactive (unmounted) after reboot

This comes up once in a while, you reboot a server, or a storage, and the datastores that are NFS mounted don't come up.  (In this case, I used update manager to patch some ESXi hosts, and it happened.

This is what it looks like:

The resolution is quite simple, you *could* just unmount the NFS stores and remount them, however that can take time, the easy way is to SSH to the host, and issue this command:

esxcfg-nas -r

that's it!
