Incorrect plugin type for SCSI device allocation (2008928)

  • 1 Ratings


When an invalid storage module attempts to configure a SCSI device, you receive the following event message:

SCSI Device Allocation not supported for plugin type #

This indicates a storage plugin other than a multi-path module attempts to allocate resources for a SCSI device.  This is likely the result of a malfunctioning storage module or a bad configuration.


The storage system configuration might be incorrect.


Check your storage configuration and any storage plugin modules on the ESXi host for any issues.
