After you register a storage provider component with vCenter Server, the storage provider appears on the storage providers list. Certain storage providers are self-registered and automatically appear on the list after you set up the entity they represent, for example, vSAN or I/O filters.

Use the vSphere Client to view general storage provider information and details for each storage component.


  1. Navigate to vCenter Server.
  2. Click the Configure tab, and click Storage Providers.
  3. In the Storage Providers list, view the storage providers registered with vCenter Server.
    The list shows general information including the name of the storage provider, its URL and status, version of VASA APIs, storage entities the provider represents, and so on.
  4. To display additional details, select a specific storage provider or its component from the list.
    Note: A single storage provider can support storage systems from multiple different vendors.
