vSphere API to check VAAI and VASA provider installed and enabled ?

Hi,

I want to know if there is an API available (VMware vSphere Web Services API) that one can use to identify if the

1. VAAI plug-in / Hardware Acceleration is "Supported" for specific datastore

AND the

2. VASA plug-in is "Supported"/"Installed" for specific datastore/host

If there is no such API available (VMware vSphere Web Services API); then is there any configuration setting for any Managed Object that can be checked for deriving this information

Thanks in advance.

The only reliable property seems to be “Datastore.capability.nativeSnapshotSupported” which appears to be set to true only if the VAAI plug-in is installed on the respective host and the installed VAAI plug-in supports the respective Datastore Hardware Acceleration.

It’s not clear if there are any experts in this forum those have used vSphere API to an extent. Anyways appreciate the forum for help and support.
