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

Prerequisites

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.

Procedure

To list all storage devices, run the following command:

esxcli storage nmp device list

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