EVA disk enclosures serial numbers

Hello,

We need to read the serial numbers of 8 disk shelves for support purposes. Nothing worked so far; SSSU commands give only WWN of the disk enclosures, not their SN. I know there is an HP-only tool for this but is there another way of doing it (I am not HP)? I do not want to switch off the EVA with downtime and take off the disk shelves just to read their SN!!!

Thanks,
Vince

AFAIR command view does not read these values, but the M6412 shelf has the number printed on the rear side.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

I have M6412B (EVA4000) and the SN are on the left side of it (if you look from the front).

But an EVA4000 usually has a M5314A/B/C enclosure, the M6412 is used with x400 series.

I doubt if the older models store the number anywhere.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
