  2. Click the Configuration tab and click Storage in the Hardware panel.
  3. Click Datastores under View.
  4. From the list of configured datastores, select the datastore whose paths you want to view, and click Properties.

    The panel underneath displays the path's name. The name includes parameters describing the path: adapter ID, target ID, and device ID.
