Usage Guidelines

  • If a storage system administrator changes the path network (for example, changes the Fibre Channel port connected to the storage system), some paths managed by UltraPath for vSphere may enter faulty state, interfering the administrator's detection of faulty paths. In this case, run the command to delete the paths from UltraPath for vSphere.
  • On an operating system that does not support hot swap or when an iSCSI software initiator is used, changing path ports does not trigger SCSI device deletion on the corresponding host. The path information cannot be deleted, either. In this case, you need run the command provided by the operating system to refresh devices.


Delete the information about the obsolete physical path whose ID is 1.

~ # esxcli upadm clear obsoletepath -p 1
Succeeded in executing the command.
