Re: Host INQs for ESXi Servers

Recommend installing VSI-Storage Viewer on the machine where you have vSphere client.

You will be able to get device details from the devices provisioned from EMC array to ESXi host.

Re: Host INQs for ESXi Servers

Also if i remember well starting with SE 7.2, it is possible to performs inquiries into a vSphere environment using SYMCLI commands to identify and resolve storage configuration. The SYMVM command can add devices to virtual machines and display storage configuration info.

A short list of functionality available when using symvm is as follows:

Adding available symmetrix devices as raw device mappings to virtual machines

List available candidate devies for RDMs

List a virtual machine's RDMs

List operating systems of virtual machines

List datastores on a given ESX host

Provide details of a given datastore

List details of a given virtual machine

It is very helpful command regarding the ESX hosts
