esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s SATP –device device_name –option=”enable_ssd”

You can add a claim rule by specifying the vendor name and the model name.

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s SATP -V vendor_name -M model_name --option="enable_ssd"

You can add a claim rule based on the driver name.

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add -s SATP --driver driver_name --option="enable_ssd"

Reclaim the device.

esxcli storage core claiming reclaim --device device_name

Verify if devices are tagged as SSD.

esxcli storage core device list -d device_name

The command output indicates if a listed device is tagged as SSD.

Is SSD: true

What to do next:

If the SSD device that you want to tag is shared among multiple hosts, make sure that you tag the device from all the hosts that share the device.
