viewing the available LUNs in linux

Hi

My system is connected with SAN network.
and I has four SAN disks (LUNs).

so I want to know

1) what are the device files assigned for those SAN disks.

2)and how many SAN disks (LUNs) are available.

what is the command used in linux to view above information.

Re: viewing the available LUNs in linux

Hi Senith Kumar

Linux doesn't have ioscan.

Try dmesg to see what device are attached to your system.

Try #cat /proc/scsi/scsi to see what scsi device are attached.

Try #fdisk -l /dev/sda or /dev/hda to see how many partitions are in the disk.

Try #free to see the memory usage and also swap usage (No swapinfo on Linux.)

Try #cat /proc/meminfo

Try #cat /proc/cpuinfo to see
what cpu your system is using.

Hi Senthil kumar,

can you post the "df -k" output for your "linux Server"

if your "Linux Server configured with LVM"

we can you vgdisplay command to check,

Thanks,
Johnson

Re: viewing the available LUNs in linux

I have taken "df" and "dmesg" reports for two linux servers.

server 1:

I have following questions:

server 1:

1) is the first server has only two luns (sda-lun0, sdb-lun1)
2) what is tape st0, tape st1..
3) what is generic sg0, sg1, sg2 ...


server 2:

1) is the second server has only four luns (sda-lun0, sdb-lun1, sdc-lun2, sdd-lun3)


pls answer my questions one by one.
