Re: how to identify a vv from 3par data fibre channel disk

Hi there. Not sure I understand the question, but I think you may be looking for HPE LUNinfo (previously known as HPE 3PARinfo).  I believe the latest version is v1.8.

"HPE LUNInfo software is used to obtain configuration information about HPE Storage LUNs that are exposed to the host from HPE Primera and HPE 3PAR Storage systems.

You can obtain the following information using the HPE LUNInfo:

  • List of LUNs exposed to hosts
  • Information about a specific LUN that is exposed to the host."

See the HPE LUNInfo User Guide for details.

Yes. The basic command is

HP3PARInfo -i

Device
File Name   Size [MB]   Tgt    Lun    LUN WWN    VV Name    Code Rev    Serial#
==============================================================================================================================
/dev/hdisk2 3072 30600 0 60002ac00000000001017ed200001dca HE_2GB_2 3.3.1 MU1 1407626
/dev/hdisk3 1024 30600 1000000000000 60002ac00000000001017eab00001dca Dest_Snap_1_Rest_1234 3.3.1 MU1 1407626

or even 

HP3PARInfo -i | grep 60002ac000000000000000c30000615c

Download and install on your host. Use from your command line prompt.

Re: how to identify a vv from 3par data fibre channel disk

In case you are trying to find the vv on a bunch of 3PAR systems (and not on an attached host):

The last four digits identify the array, all vvs from an array share the same ending of the scsi-ids and wwns. You can dig deeper from there. (showvv with corresponding options if you are directly connected with putty or the like). It comes handy to have the documentation (SNs, IPS, Names, etc.) of 3PAR arrays contain a column "WWN ends with...".

In SSMC, you can paste this scsi-id in the search box in the volumes section of ssmc. Do not press enter, just paste it there. SSMC will display the vv name if it finds it. If you press enter, it will (awkwardly) not find anything.
