Claimrules

Had to write some custom claimrules today because Powerpath & RDM didn't like to play with each other. Didn't think I would ever use claimrules in real life when I was studying it for the DCA. Had to write it for 12 different LUNs so it took a while, but overall wasn't too bad.

    Yeah, please share. I never thought I would actually see a real world application for this :)

    It was pretty basic. Claimrule works like ACL in that if there's 2 rules against the same object, the lower number rule in invoked, while higher number rule is ignored. Powerpath rules started at 350, so I set mine in 200s:

    esxcli storage core claimrule add -r 2xx -t location -L xx -P NMP
    esxcli storage core claimrule load
    esxcli storage core claiming unclaim -t location -L xx
    esxcli storage core claimrule run
