A script to audit datastore visability to your ESX hosts in a cluster

If your running clusters with a bunch of hosts in them you probably had the need at one point for a script like this. So what does this puppy do? It will look at your clusters and then the hosts and verify if each host can see the datastore. You might have one host that cannot see a particular datastore and is causing you issues with migrations or DRS. You other option is to do this manually by looking at each host and checking the datastores via the vSphere client.

I would recommend you save yourself a bunch of time and gray hairs and use this great script that was written by LucD. You can get some more details about this script and download it from his blog here.
