The Maps view on the vSphere Client Storage Views tab helps you visually represent and understand the relationships between an inventory object and all virtual and physical storage resources available for this object. Maps are object-centric and display only items relevant to the specific object.

Maps are automatically updated every 30 minutes. You can manually update the maps by clicking the Update link.

You can customize a map view by selecting or deselecting options in the Show area, or by hiding specific items or changing their position on the map.

You can reposition the map by dragging it, and zoom in or out of the map or a section.

Note: Storage maps are not available in the vSphere Web Client.
