Virtual Storage Console (VSC)

Description

Virtual Storage Console triggers a discovery in the following ways:

  • Immediately after VSC service startup
  • Daily scheduled discovery (by default at 6 AM local time)
  • Automatic discovery whenever there is a datastore related event in the vSphere event logs

The following vCenter events will result in triggering a VSC discovery:

// Datastore events
vim.event.DatastoreCapacityIncreasedEvent 
vim.event.DatastoreDestroyedEvent 
vim.event.DatastoreDuplicatedEvent 
vim.event.DatastoreRenamedEvent 

// Host events
vim.event.DatastoreDiscoveredEvent
vim.event.DatastorePrincipalConfigured 
vim.event.DatastoreRemovedOnHostEvent 
vim.event.DatastoreRenamedOnHostEvent 
vim.event.LocalDatastoreCreatedEvent 
vim.event.NASDatastoreCreatedEvent 
vim.event.NoDatastoresConfiguredEvent 
vim.event.VMFSDatastoreCreatedEvent 
vim.event.VMFSDatastoreExpandedEvent 
vim.event.VMFSDatastoreExtendedEvent 

When VSC triggers a discovery, the following tasks are generated in the vCenter task pane:

  • NetApp Storage Discovery
  • NetApp Host Discovery
