VCDX Enterprise Admin Notes: Verify SAN LUN Accessibility

by Harley Stagner on November 19, 2009

This note is about Objective 1.1.S.2: Verify SAN LUN Accessibility. There are two simple ways to determine if a SAN LUN is accessible.

  • See if you can browse the datastore in the VI client. See if you can get in the folder containing a virtual machine on that datastore (LUN).
  • On the command line, list the contents of the /vmfs/volumes directory. Then navigate to the LUN in question and see if the vm files show up.
    • ls -l /vmfs/volumes
    • cd /vmfs/volumes/LUN_3 (for example).
