You can manage paths for mapped raw LUNs.


Launch the vSphere Client and log in to a vCenter Server system or an ESXi host.


  1. Log in as administrator or as the owner of the virtual machine to which the mapped disk belongs.
  2. Select the virtual machine from the Inventory panel.
  3. On the Summary tab, click Edit Settings.
  4. On the Hardware tab, select Hard Disk, then click Manage Paths.
  5. Use the Manage Paths dialog box to enable or disable your paths, set multipathing policy, and specify the preferred path.
    For information on managing paths, see Understanding Multipathing and Failover.
