Command Description Options Help
storage core adapter list List all the SCSI Host Bus Adapters on the system.
--help
Show the help message.
storage core adapter rescan Rescan SCSI HBAs to search for new Devices, remove DEAD paths and update path state. This operation will also run an claim operation equivalent to the claimrule run command and a filesystem rescan.
--adapter | -A
Select the adapter to use when rescanning SCSI adapters. This must be a SCSI HBA name as shown in the adapter list command. This cannot be used with the --all option
--all | -a
Indicate the rescan should rescan all adapters instead of a specific one.
--skip-claim | -S
By default after an add operation a claiming session is run to find new devices and have them be claimed by the appropriate Multipath Plugin. Passing this flag will skip that claiming session.
--skip-fs-scan | -F
By default after all rescan operations a filesystem scan is performed to add newly found filesystems and remove any filesystems that are no longer available. Passing this flag will skip that filesystem scan.
--type | -t
Specify the type of rescan to perform. Available types are add: Perform rescan and only add new devices if any. all: Perform rescan and do all opertaions (this is the default action.) delete: Perform rescan and only delete DEAD devices. update: Rescan existing paths only and update path states.

storage core claiming autoclaim Control the automatic PSA (path/device) claiming code allowing the disabling of the automatic claiming process or re-enabling of the claiming process if it was previously disabled. By default the automatic PSA claiming process is on and should not be disabled by users unless specifically instructed to do so.
--claimrule-class | -c
Indicate the claim rule class to use in this operation [MP, Filter, VAAI, all].
--enabled
Set the autoclaiming enabled state for a givenPSA plugin type in the VMkernel. Default is to have this process enabled. This should not be changed by users unless specifically instructed to do so. (required)
--wait | -w
If the --wait flag is provided then the autoclaim enable will wait for paths to 'settle' before running the claim operation. This means that the system is reasonably sure that all paths on the system have appeared before enabling autoclaim.

--help
Show the help message.
storage core claiming unclaim 1) Unclaim a path or set of paths, disassociating them from a PSA plugin. NOTES: It is normal for path claiming to fail especially when unclaiming by plugin or adapter. Only inactive paths with no I/O will be able to be unclaimed. Typically the ESXi USB partition and devices with VMFS volumes on them will not be unclaimable. Also NOTE unclaiming will not persist and periodic path claiming will reclaim these paths in the near future unless claim rules are configured to mask the path. 2) Detach a (set of) filter(s) from one or more devices.
--adapter | -A
If the --type paramter is 'location' this value indicates the name of the host bus adapter for the paths you wish to unclaim. This parameter can be omitted to indicate unclaiming should be run on paths from all adapters.

--driver | -D
If the --type parameter is 'driver' attempt to unclaim all paths provided by a specific HBA driver.
--lun | -L
If the --type paramter is 'location' this value indicates the value of the SCSI Logical Unit Number (LUN) for the paths you wish to unclaim. This parameter can be omitted to indicate unclaiming should be run on paths with any Logical Unit Number.
--model | -m
If the --type parameter is 'vendor' attempt to unclaim all paths to devices with specific model info (for multipathing plugins) or unclaim the device itself (for filter plugins). NOTE. For paths, if there are any active I/O operations on this device, at least 1 path will fail to unclaim.
--path | -p
If the --type parameter is 'path' attempt to unclaim a specific path given its path UID or runtime name.
--plugin | -P
If the --type parameter is 'plugin' attempt to unclaim all paths on for a given multipath plugin OR all devices attached to a filter plugin.
--target | -T
If the --type paramter is 'location' this value indicates the value of the SCSI target number for the paths you wish to unclaim. This parameter can be omitted to indicate unclaiming should be run on paths with any target number.
--type | -t
Indicate the type of unclaim you wish to perform. Valid values for this paramter are [location, path, driver, device, plugin, vendor] (required)
--vendor | -v
If the --type parameter is 'vendor' attempt to unclaim all paths to devices with specific vendor info (for multipathing plugins) or unclaim the device itself (for filter plugins). NOTE. For paths, if there are any active I/O operations on this device, at least 1 path will fail to unclaim.
