Block size property of dataStore

Jump to solution

How to get the Block size defined in the configuration tab of datastore. Is there a property I should be looking at. Currently I was trying to get the DataStore managed object but haven't been able to get the Block Size from that.

The block size is defined when the VMFS-3 Datastore is created - to change you have remove the VMFS datastore and rebuild with the new block size-

From vSphere CLient, get a host, Configuration tab, Storage, select a DataStore and get BlockSize in "Datastore Details" pane as "Formatting --> Block Size"
