problem with esxcfg-volume on vMA 4.1

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm a beginner with vMA. I use vMA 4.1 with ESXi 4.1.

I make vifp addservers and vifptarget --set on a ESXi, but the esxcfg-volume -l or --list command return nothing!

What did I forget?

When you run vifptarget --set does your command prompt show the proper host? You should see something like this:

\[vs-esx01.lab.vsential.net]$

Also, do you have any volumes that are snapshot volumes or replica volumes? If not, then that is why it returns nothing. What are you trying to see?
