Claim rule modification commands do not operate on the VMkernel directly. Instead, they operate on the configuration file by adding and removing rules.

Specify one of the options listed in Connection Options for vCLI Host Management Commands in place of <conn_options>.


Run one or more of the esxcli storage core claimrule modification commands.

For example, add, remove, or move.


Run esxcli storage core claimrule load to replace the current rules in the VMkernel with the modified rules from the configuration file.

You can also run esxcli storage core plugin list to list all loaded plug-ins.
