I need a basic report about what's attached to what storage. Can this be accomplished from within VSphere natively?

I can't use any third party applications to do this.

Storage Views Tab in vCenter Server or the Maps Tab?

It will show the relationships between Storage HBAs, LUNs, Virtual Machines, Initiators, Servers, Datastores, and Hosts

various objects can be turned on or off, and you can export the picture or map!

Yeah exporting the map is one way I was hoping of some tabular formatted report though.

if you want a tabular report, you would need to use third party software or scripts. (which I can suggest!)

but you stated

"I can't use any third party applications to do this. "

you can use the Inventory > Datastores,

Export Lists in Excel, CSV, HTML or XML format, and by turning off and on various columns can customize your list!

when you say what's attached, do you mean VMs in the datastore?
