Identify EVA5000 specific vitrual disk presented to a SUN server

Hello,
I have two like sized 160 gig EVA5000 virtual disks presented to a Solaris 9 server, but I am only using 1 disk. Since the two disks are the exact same size. How do I identify from securepath or a utility which vdisk is which so I do not yank the wrong one? In the EMC and XP world it is extremely easy to find frame serial number and the lun number so you can be sure you pull the right disk. How do you do so on the EVA5000? I do not want to take the server down and guess.
Many Thanks

Hi Jeff,

When you run "spmgr display", you would see the LUNWWID against the LUN created for the Vdisk by secure path.
The LUNWWID could be verified/matched in CV-EVA Vdisk properties.

Be aware in EVA you can't pin-point to a physical disk being part of Vdisk (Virtual)
The data of a Vdisk is scattered across various physical disks.
