View LUN ID's attached to VM

Jump to solution

Is there any straight forward way to identify the LUN ID of a disk attached to a VM in vSphere? What are the ways/best practices for doing so? Not an expert, and I have support of others here, but I need to swing over about 6 LUN's from one VM to another.

I found a way to determine the LUN ID attached to an RDM disk on a VM (6.5 build).

VM > Right click & select Edit > Manage Other Disk (button) > Expand the disk you want to view, and click Manage Paths... > LUN ID column is shown.

Unfortunately there is no a solution provided. You may try to match the virtual disks with the guest disks, is to use slightly different virtual disk sizes.

Other option

Hope these below two VMware KB Articles helps.
