How to use SSH/Console to find the required information.


Where is the VID:DID/SVID:SSID in ESXi located?


To find the VID:DID/SVID:SSID in ESXi - do the following:

  1. Ensure SSH is enabled on the host.
  2. Use the following command: vmkchdev -l
  3. The output of that command will appear as follows:
    1. 0000:08:01.1 1077:4032 1077:0158 vmkernel vmhba2
  4. In the previous example, 1077:4032 1077:0158 is the VID:DID SVID:SSID in that order.
