Need to determine the number of drives that are installed on ESXi 5.1 R720 Dell

Hi ,

i need to determine how many drives my ESXi host has.
I see two non-ssd drives on the R720 , and i need to add space , however i am not sure if the server has space for more drives.
Can i use the command esxcli storage core path list  ? Would that do it ?

If you have the OEM DELL version, you can install Dell OpenManage Server Administrator on your server, but it depends on how you have presented your storage disks, to ESXi, if you have used and created RAID Arrays, only the Dell virtual disk will be presented to ESXi, and you will not be able to see the makeup of that RAID array.

see my EE Article

HOW TO: Use Dell OpenManage Server Administrator to Create and Manage a Virtual Disk (RAID Array) on a Dell PowerEdge Server with VMware vSphere 5.0, ESXi 5.0 installed.

if you do not have this installed, it may be easier to reboot the server, and check the PERC Controller BIOS, via iDRAC.
