Diagnostic Tools for VMFS File System?

CnicNV asked
Last Modified: 2015-04-02
Hello all,

I am wondering if it is possible to diagnose or run some sort of check disk on hard drives running VMware's VMFS file system?  Or is this something that would be automatically reported in events and alerts in vcenter server console for each host?  Or does VMFS automatically handle bad sectors and should I rely on out of band server diagnostics tools to check hard drive SMART status etc?
