Before creating a VMDK resource, register the ESXi host information. Follow the steps below:

  1. Execute the following command on the console screen.
    # /opt/LifeKeeper/lkadm/subsys/scsi/vmdk/bin/esxi_register -a <ESXi host name>
  • When you execute the command, you will be asked for the username and password. Enter the username and password used to log in to the
ESXi host. Failing to login will lead to an error and you will not be able to register.
  1. Register each ESXi host in the cluster the same way.
  1. Once all of the ESXi hosts have been registered, make sure that they have been registered correctly with the following command:
    # /opt/LifeKeeper/lkadm/subsys/scsi/vmdk/bin/esxi_register -l
  • A list of registered hosts will be provided.
  1. Register the ESXi host in the same way on all nodes in the cluster.

For details of the esxi_register command, see VMDK Maintenance.
