After you deploy I/O filters, a storage provider, also called a VASA provider, is automatically registered for every ESXi host in the cluster. You can verify that the I/O filter storage providers appear as expected and are active.

Successful auto-registration of the I/O filter storage provider triggers an event at the host level. If the storage provider fails to auto-register, the system raises an alarm on the host.
