Datastore to Volume reconciliation

Paul Walsh

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?
