Use the esxcli commands to remove a multipathing PSA claim rule from the set of claim rules on the system.

Before you begin

Install vCLI or deploy the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) virtual machine. See Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces. For troubleshooting, run esxcli commands in the ESXi Shell.

About this task

In the procedure, --server=server_name specifies the target server. The specified target server prompts you for a user name and password. Other connection options, such as a configuration file or session file, are supported. For a list of connection options, see Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces.

Procedure

  1. Delete a claim rule from the set of claim rules.

    esxcli --server=server_name storage core claimrule remove

    Note:

    By default, the PSA claim rule 101 masks Dell array pseudo devices. Do not delete this rule, unless you want to unmask these devices.

    The command takes the following options:

    Option

    Description

    -c|--claimrule-class=<str>

    Indicate the claim rule class to use in this operation (MP, Filter, VAAI).

    -P|--plugin=<str>

    Indicate the plugin to use for this operation.

    -r|--rule=<long>

    Indicate the rule ID to use for this operation.

    This step removes the claim rule from the File class.

  2. Remove the claim rule from the system.

    esxcli --server=server_name storage core claimrule load

    This step removes the claim rule from the Runtime class.
