VMware Storage Canonical Name or Device Identifiers

Making this list to assist me in helping to identify the type of storage by the Canonical name or Device ID for VMware Clusters and hosts where there is more than one type of Storage.

EMC Clariion = naa.6006*
IBM FastT DS = naa.600a*
HP EVA = naa.6001*
NetApp FAS = naa.60a9*

    The canonical identifier “naa.” is the VMFS signature, this can be seen from within vmware and is the LUN signature created when it’s formatted.

    Using the VI client, configuration tab, storage and select devices.

    You can also use powercli and the following command when connected to VirtualCentre.

    Get-Cluster “clustername” | Get-VMHost | Get-ScsiLun | fl
