“Cannot change the host configuration” when adding an existing VMFS

Today i have experienced a weird problem with vCenter. I was adding an existing VMFS lun to our vSphere cluster. Adding the VMFS to the first node worked flawlessly but all other nodes fails with the error “Cannot change the host configuration”

After some googling i found out that i was not the only one with this problem. It seems to be a bug in vCenter. You can work around this problem by connecting to the ESX server directly with the viclient. Adding the VMFS works perfect this way.
