The vCenter Server periodically updates storage data in its database. The updates are partial and reflect only those storage changes that storage providers communicate to the vCenter Server. When needed, you can perform a full database synchronisation for the selected storage provider.


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


  1. Select View > Administration > Storage Providers.
  2. From the list, select the vendor provider that you want to synchronise with and click Sync.


The vSphere Client updates the storage data for the provider.
