File System: Type

Post by mdiver » Oct 24, 2018 3:54 pm

I would like to display a report showing all datastores with their VMFS type. File System: Type" only carries "VMFS" in all cases.
Is there a way to show the version of VMFS in the list (e.g. VMFS5/VMFS6)?

Thanks,
Mike

Hi mdiver, I am curious what value the VMFS version information gives?

I only ask as I used to research VMFS revisions very specifically over the years, but gave up as it really did not matter after all.

Hi Rick.
We have many customers in the process of switching from VMFS-5 to VMFS-6 for known benefits and it would be very helpful to see how far this process has been driven so far.
Funny point is, in vCenter (all 3 clients) this info is directly visible with the type in the list of datastores.
VeeamONE seems to drop the suffix intendedly.
Thanks and regards,
Mike

Mike, indeed VMFS type cannot be displayed currently.
I've taken the request into account though.
Thanks!
