User Guide for Solid State Drive Data Center Tool 3.0.0 is missing

New Contributor II

In contrast to the statement there "The DCT User Guide is included in both of the downloadable ZIP files [...]" I can't find the Data Center Tool User Guide in any of the three zip files.

Is there any particular piece of information you are looking for regarding this tool?

I am here for the exact same reason as the OP.

Trying to determine how to run the Data Center Tool on my ESXi host and I have no idea how to do this. It is not documented - as far as I can tell.

I see that Windows and Linux it is done via the command line, no mention of VMware.

There is zero mention of how to run this on my VMware ESXi host. I was able to install the tool using the esxcli install vib, but after that - I was left on my own to figure out the rest.

It is not very intuitive nor do I immediately know how to get this running on my ESXi 5.5 host.

This tool needs documentation desperately and relatively fast.

The syntax using isdct.exe has changed, Until now I was able to query the temperatures of my SSDs (Intel SSD DC S3500 Series) using

isdct.exe show -display raw -sensor ID=C2

resulting in

- BTWL4200007H480QGN.C2 -

raw: 34

- PHWL429200FB480QGN.C2 -

raw: 36

Now I'm getting

Syntax Error: Invalid command. Error at or around '='.

Did you mean:

show [-help|-h] [-display|-d (Property1,...)] [-all|-a] [-output|-o (text|nvmxml|json)] -sensor [-intelssd [(Index|SerialNumber)]]


I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.

Not sure if this helps or not

isdct show -sensor | grep Temperature


isdct show -sensor -intelssd | grep Temperature


isdct show -sensor -intelssd 0 | grep Temperature

But, yes - an updated User Guide is a required.

P.S. Sorry to have hi-jacked your thread with my blurb.
