Use the esxcli command to list all storage devices controlled by the VMware NMP and display SATP and PSP information associated with each device.

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.


To list all storage devices, run the following command:

esxcli --server=server_name storage nmp device list

Use the --device | -d=device_ID parameter to filter the output of this command to show a single device.
