Test Description

This test makes sure that advanced SCSI options are set correctly on the host. The following options are verified:

  • SCSIEnableDescToFixedConv should be set to 1
    InfiniBox always sends SCSI sense data in descriptor format and not in fixed format. The option /Scsi/SCSIEnableDescToFixedConv enables correctly interpreting sense data in descriptor format.

Advanced SCSI options are not configured to work with InfiniBox. See options above.

This test case passes if:

Advanced SCSI options are configured to work with InfiniBox. See options above.


How to fix this test

Automatic fix

This test case automatically sets the options to the desired values.

Manual fix

Set the SCSI options manually using "esxcli". Log in with ssh to the ESX host:

  • For the option SCSIEnableDescToFixedConv, run:
    esxcli system settings advanced set --option "/Scsi/SCSIEnableDescToFixedConv" --int-value 1
    Notes:
    • This option is not available on some older ESX versions
    • The value "1" is the default in recent ESX versions.
