You normally get 3rd party tools from the vendor, that make life easier listing the UIDs of the disks.

 

For example:

 

HP eva: evainfo

HP xp: xpinfo

IBM DS: querysn

EMC: inq

 

You can allways try with scsimgr, for example in a symmetrix you get the lun uid with:

 

# scsimgr get_attr -D /dev/rdisk/disk30 -a serial_number

 

But with and eva or clariion You get the SN of the controller, you need to use the wwid:

 

scsimgr get_attr -D /dev/rdisk/disk10 -a wwid
Windows?, no thanks
