After you register a vendor provider component with the vCenter Server, the vendor provider appears on the vendor providers list in the vSphere Client.

View general vendor provider information and details for each vendor component.


Launch the vSphere Client and log in to a vCenter Server system.


  1. Select View > Administration > Storage Providers.
  2. In the Vendor Providers list, view the vendor provider components registered with the vCenter Server.
    The list shows general vendor information including the name, URL, and the time of the last view refresh.
  3. To display additional details, select a specific vendor provider from the list.
    The details include storage array vendors and array models that the vendor provider supports.
    Note: A single vendor provider can support storage arrays from multiple different vendors.
