About the multi-pathing discovery in the VMware environment using Veritas Operations Manager

The support for multi-pathing discovery in the VMware environment lets you discover information that is related to the disk multipathing for the ESX servers in your datacenter. It lets you manage disk paths under VxDMP on the ESX servers. It is enabled using Control Host Add-on. For each disk, you can discover the following information:

  • Total number of paths, and number of active paths.

  • The details about the path.

  • The information about the multipathing applications. The multipathing applications can be VMware native multipathing (NMP), EMC PowerPath/Virtual Edition, or Symantec VxDMP.

You can enable or disable the disk paths using the DMP maintenance wizard using the Veritas Operations Manager console.

Note:

You can also generate the report containing the details about the DMP licenses that are installed on the VMware ESX servers. The license discovery is also enabled using Control Host Add-on.
