How to get list of Virtual Machines with RDM PowerCLI

How to get list of Virtual Machines with RDM PowerCLI

Today we had a requirement to know all virtual machines with RDM LUN mapped .So we can plan the carefully move that machine to another ESXi hots .I found a PowerCLI script that gave me good information about Virtual machines mapped with RDM LUNs. Source link

I got the below result .It show all VM and there connected RDM with LUN ID and HDD Details.

LUNID

 

 

 
$vcenter = "name-of-your-vcenter-server-here"
$outputFile = "c:\temp\All-RDMs-" + (get-date -Format yyyy-MM-dd-HHmm) + ".csv"

"Connecting vCenter servers ..."
Connect-VIServer $vcenter -AllLinked

$report = @()
$luns = @{}
