how to obtain OS device ID from navicli

Hi

Long story but for one host have moved from Powerpath to MPxIO. Want to find a way to get the verrry long device ids (e.g. c5t60060160B2211B009C2EED1267A7DE11d0s0) from navicli output so I can quickly update the vfstab and remount the LUNs. It displays under the host tab of the navisphere GUI (LUN properties) but cant see it in navicli -h xxxx getlun xx

Thanks

Have you tried the INQ utility? On PowerLink try the following:

Home > Support > Product and Diagnostic Tools > INQ Utility

this is a sample from a SUN Solaris 10 running the INQ

Thanks Glen - I will give check that utility out.

i was being a bit hasty - have since figured out that the UID returned by the getlun is actually the device name just colon seperated. Could strip out the colons from the string with sed or awk but will also definitley look at the inquire - the only inquire command we have is the one from Networker.
