Troubleshoot complex storage solutions -Adding a SATP Rule

Adding SATP Rules:

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s “ElGendiSATP” -V “ElGendiVendor” -M “ElGendiModel” -P “VMW_PSP_MRU” 

I got this error:

Error adding SATP user rule: Sysinfo error on operation returned status: name too long. Please see the Vmkernel log for detailed error information.

The problem was in the “” and the long rule , vendor and Model names,, No problem , let us have a shorter name 🙂

Will do it with new host:

esxcli storage nmp satp list

esxcli storage core plugin registration list -N SATP

See above I have fresh lists

I do register my plugin first then add its rule:

esxcli storage core plugin registration add -P “TSTSATP” -N SATP -m “TSTMod”

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s TSTSATP -V TSTVend -M TSTMod -P “VMW_PSP_MRU”

List again to see :

esxcli storage nmp satp list

esxcli storage core plugin registration list -N SATP

It went to Fixed , I don’t really want to know why , I just did what I want so far , you can comment to let others know.
