Script to Get Datastore Path Information

Hello guys…!!!

Here is script developed to get the No Of Paths per DS and Type of path selection policy and to which VMHBA it is connected.

PowerShell Scrip:

Connect-VIServer -Server servername -User username -password password
#Get list of ESXi Hosts
$esxihosts=gc C:\hosts.txt
For($i = 1; $i -le $esxihosts.count; $i++)
ForEach ($esxihost in $esxihosts) {
 $esxi = Get-VMHost -Name $esxihost
 $hbas = $esxi | Get-VMH

 ForEach ($hba in $hbas) {
 $scsiluns = $hba | Get-ScsiLun
 ForEach ($scsilun in $scsiluns) { 
 $exportDSPaths=New-Object PSObject
 $scsipaths =$scsilun | Get-Scsilunpath |Select-Object *
 $DS=Get-Datastore |Get-View |Where-Object {$_.Info.vmfs.Extent.DiskName -eq $LunNaaID}
 #Write-Host $DS.Name,$LunNaaID,$LunPathPolicy,$PathCount,$hba.Name,$esxi.Name
 $exportDSPaths|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "EsxiHost" -Value $esxi.Name
