Datastore to Volume reconciliation

Hi All,

We currently run VMware at two sites. Both sites use Dell SANS for storage. We have a few production vms that are managed from site 1 but the datastore is on site 2. The naming of the datastore to SAN volume do not match for many of the datastores. What is the easiest method to marry a VM datastore to its volume counterpart on the SAN?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Make sure LUN name matches Datastore Name

Or maintain good documentation

In the vSphere Client you can print out a storage map that may help
