Multipath verification

Hello,

looking for Powershell script that will show total number of multi paths on multiple ESXi hosts in Cluster

i have cluster containing 8 ESXI hosts and i believe that path count well excited limit of 1024 ( 4 paths x 256) this is vspere vcenter 6.0 and would like to know if it is possible to show that numbers behind 1024 paths maximums?

Thank You!

script provided by LucD (thank you) give me number of paths per host along with associated naa.

however, path count did not goes above 1024 per host and it looks like there are more paths per host as per one of my colleague (not sure how he come up with total path count of 1417 per host)

when new colleague try to add new LUN(s) to the hosts error is in screenshot

Not sure how whomever added LUNs went way over the configuration maximum (4 paths x 256)

Ok, you are talking about PowerPath.

On the maximum, does this older thread not answer your question?
