Determine FC drives vs. SATA drives

Jump to solution

Is there a command from the symcli that will list all devices (assigned and unassigned) on the DMX3 and DMX4 that will show which devices are Fibre Channel drives and which drives are SATA drives?

Thanks

yep,

you can also run "symdisk show 16B:D5 -sid 123"  and look for device speed string (Speed (RPM) )

if you are talking about symdev, there is a command but its only available on VMAX:

symdev list -sid 123 -technology <EFD | FC | SATA>

Thanks, that lists the actual disks, but still doesn't tell me if they are FC or SATA:

I googled for a SEAGATE T300R10 and actually got no results (which I thought was nearly impossible with Google )

Edit: Sorry, this answer was for "symdisk list".. just saw your second reply after I submitted this.  I'll try that one.

300G - those are FC drives

./symdev list -sid 92 -technology

'-technology': Illegal option.

Yeah, that didn't work.  So basically, if they are 300GB they are FC and if they are 1TB or more, they are SATA?

Awesome.. now my last question is, does that apply to all the disks, meaning, how did you determine the range "16B:D5".  We have four Symmetrix's (one DMX-3 and three DMX-4s), each with different capacities and number of disks.  This one reports it has 36 disks in it, but that command seems to have only shown 25 of them (if I'm reading it right).

Unfortunately the ‘Technology’ and ‘Form Factor’ fields for the SE v7.3 symdisk command are only available on a VMax. They are not available for DMX.

that's not a range, that's just one physical disk. Those 25 devices that you are seeing, those are symdev devices that reside on that physical spindle.
