The VMware vSphere storage architecture consists of layers of abstraction that hide the differences and manage the complexity among physical storage subsystems. To the applications and guest operating systems inside each virtual machine, the storage subsystem appears as a virtual SCSI controller connected to one or more virtual SCSI disks. These controllers are the only types of […]
When troubleshooting network connectivity issues, it may be helpful to see all the active incoming and outgoing TCP/UDP connections on an ESX/ESXi host. ESX hosts can use the netstat command and ESXi 4.1 and later hosts can use esxcli network to show the list of TCP/UDP connections. The commands are: ESX 3.5/4.x – # netstat -tnp ESXi 4.1 – # esxcli […]
