      Hi,

      my pquestion is this;

       

      When i run this command ;

       

      # esxcli nmp device list -d naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11

      naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11

          Device Display Name: DGC Fibre Channel Disk (naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11)

          Storage Array Type: VMW_SATP_CX

          Storage Array Type Device Config: {navireg ipfilter}

          Path Selection Policy: VMW_PSP_MRU

          Path Selection Policy Device Config: Current Path=vmhba0:C0:T2:L0

      I have the information for specific LUN attach at my esx host.

       

      For change information "Device Display Name" is possible with vSphere Client, but is possible change this information with command line on

      ESX host?

       

      Thanks for help.

            Hi Frank,

            my problem is not rename a datastore but change the Display name LUNs that are presented to the server.

             

            For example;

            now i have this ( esxcfg-mpath -l;

             

               Runtime Name: vmhba0:C0:T0:L0

               Device: naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11

               Device Display Name: DGC Fibre Channel Disk (naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11)

               Adapter: vmhba0 Channel: 0 Target: 0 LUN: 0

               Adapter Identifier: fc.50060b0000c19085:50060b0000c19084

               Target Identifier: fc.50060160b9a03aed:5006016039a03aed

               Plugin: NMP

               State: standby

               Transport: fc

               Adapter Transport Details: WWNN: 50:06:0b:00:00:c1:90:85 WWPN: 50:06:0b:00:00:c1:90:84

               Target Transport Details: WWNN: 50:06:01:60:b9:a0:3a:ed WWPN: 50:06:01:60:39:a0:3a:ed

             

            With vCenter i rename the "Device Display Name" so;

             

            Runtime Name: vmhba0:C0:T0:L0

               Device: naa.6006016055351f00506decc0459cde11

               Device Display Name: LUN_PIPPO

               Adapter: vmhba0 Channel: 0 Target: 0 LUN: 0

               Adapter Identifier: fc.50060b0000c19085:50060b0000c19084

               Target Identifier: fc.50060160b9a03aed:5006016039a03aed

               Plugin: NMP

               State: standby

               Transport: fc

               Adapter Transport Details: WWNN: 50:06:0b:00:00:c1:90:85 WWPN: 50:06:0b:00:00:c1:90:84

               Target Transport Details: WWNN: 50:06:01:60:b9:a0:3a:ed WWPN: 50:06:01:60:39:a0:3a:ed

             

            But i want rename with command-line.

             

            Thanks for your reply,

            I can be useful for other activities
