The OnCommand Console displays names like "Hard Disk 1" and "Hard Disk 2" for the VMDK disks mounted on a given VM. How can I map that to a useful name of a mounted filesystem on a VM, like a drive letter (C on a Wintel host or a path (/) on a LInux host? I need to be able to determine this pro grammatically via the NMSDK or other easily accessible SDKs. I am using Perl, and would vastly prefer to stick with it. I could sort of deal with having to open the BLAH.vmdk file and peek inside as long as I could determine the appropriate file for certain, and the peek returned reliable information.
Anyone attempted such a feat?

I dont know if this info is available via NMSDK, though we may try to get it via vCenter. BTW AFAIK no one has attempted this.
