Is there a way to scan for snapshots across multiple LUNS?

You can do this with the VI Toolkit using the get-snapshot command.

Not sure what you're getting at. The standard HBA scanning in ESX(i) seems to scan multiple LUNs.

Log onto the Service Console of an ESX host which has access to all the LUNs you are wanting to search and type

find /vmfs/volumes -name delta

This gives a list of the snapshot files which that ESX server can see. A bit of scripting could be done to automate email a regular report.

I have made a Powershell script what you can schedule en rapport for example active snapshots. It's possible to e-mail the HTML output. You can find the script on www.ivobeerens.nl

As suggested I downloaded the VI Toolkit and PowerGUI. Once you have PowerGUI installed with the VM powerpack, the snapshot information is right there.

Thanks to everyone for the assistance.
