ESXi 5.0 Host Profile Plug-in Support for Dell EqualLogic (2012546)

  • 0 Ratings


This article provides information about Dell EqualLogic’s Host Profile plug-in, which interacts with the vSphere 5.0 Host Profile Engine to save and retrieve configurable parameters for the Dell EqualLogic Multipathing Extension Module (MEM).


Supported hardware and/or software

This host profile supports all Dell EqualLogic PS Series Arrays


The Dell EqualLogic MEM includes several configurable parameters. In a large deployment, it may be convenient to manage the MEM parameters along with other ESXi host parameters through use of the host profile infrastructure. Additionally, the host profile plugin is required to be able to configure these parameters in a stateless boot environment.

Supported Configurable Parameters

These MEM settings are supported in the host profile provider:

  • Total Sessions
  • Volume Sessions
  • Member Sessions
  • Minimum Adapter Speed

For more information about these parameters, see the MEM User Guide.

Support information

The Host Profile plug-in is distributed as an offline bundle. The plug-in can be downloaded from Dell’s support website as part of the MEM. For EqualLogic downloads and related documentation, including the Multipathing Extension Module, see

For more information on the EqualLogic support process, see your existing support agreement.
