Find serial numbe of EVA disk enclosure

How can I find the serial number of disk enclosures in the rack of EVA 5/6/8000's? I have tried ls diskshelf full but that only provides WWN.
I checked on the front and rear but dont see any identifiers.

Look at the back-top of the Enclosure/Rack or on the back door. its a small label. you may have to open the back door.

Thanks. Apparently, to determine each disk shelf enclosure serial number requires HP's tool kit to determine.
I was not looking for the EVA serial number.

Hi Gary,

Did you find a way to gather this information in the end? I have been tasked with doing the same but am struggling to find a way

You can see this in command view eva - eva > hardware > disc enclosure #

The serial number is listed in the 'general' tab

cjb's method for me, on an EVA6000 with Command View 8.00.02, only gave the WWN, as Gary Wong said.
On physical hardware, looking at an EVA3000 for example(which may be labelled similarly or not to 5/6/8000's), the serial numbers are on the side of the enclosures, often making them impossible to see after installation.
