View Volume Serial from GUI

Hi,

i noticed something that could be improved in the GUI.

When presenting multiple volumes at the same time to hosts (ESXi for example), you need the serial of the volume to make sure you use the correct LUN when creating Datastores on the OS.  As far as i can see, you need to dig in the CLI and issue the "vol --info" command to fetch the serial.  Would be nice to have that info in the GUI as well.

Thanks!

Good point Sammy - this could get tricky especially if all volumes are of the same size.  I'll note this down as a RFE for our next vCenter plugin.

Thank you for the suggestion!
