VMFS UNMAP command


VMFS UNMAP command


Right now when I want to reclaim white space on my HP SAN I have to run the following command manually for each Volume on the SAN:


esxcli storage vmfs umap -l <<volumename>>

I'd be very interested to know if there's a way to script this so I could avoid the manual drudge work of this. Possibly even schedule it to run during non-work hours.

Re: VMFS UNMAP command

its a command from the OS, so its more appropriate to ask in that forum.  The SAN just accepts the command and updates accordingly.
