Hmm it should, does yours not have what mine does?

For each listed diskgroup all of the disks are as shown in the start of each group. So all of the drives in this disk group 1 are 3.5" 15K RPM fibre channel drives. Or are you looking for more specific information? If so you can add -v to the command and it will give you pretty much everything you need to know about each disk. I would pipe that printout to a file though as it will be a lot of information.

symdisk list -by_diskgroup -sid XXX

is probably the easiest way

Does not display technology, some of it you can guess (STEC for example) but others are not so intuitive

thanks Cody,

Question: isn't those diskgroups manually created ones ? [ sorry i am new to EMC storage , we are hitachi for years ]

  like there is one diskgroup in current vmax called srdf_journal so i am sure these are manually created ones so

   i am looking for some sort of cmd to find out how many DAEs are installed in current vmax and what kind of disk/size

   in those DAEs..

thanks in advance

Being new is nothing to apologize for! That's to be congratulated

That command will show you all of the disks on your system that are configured for use (which should be every disk on your system). With the -by_diskgroup flag it will sort them into their associated disk groups which every physical disk must be in. It will show the technology, RPM (if applicable) and form factor for that group which all disks in that group conform to. DAEs can have mixes of drive types/sizes etc in them. DAEs are physical groupings of disks that identify their physical location, and disk groups are logical groupings of like physical disks regardless to DAE location. To find out DAE disk information is a bit more work because the DAE grouping isnt something that is directly used by external applications sort disks.

Ohh  my bad , u know what it showing me sorry i overlooked the top tabs all i am looking is drive portions part.

i got it . one last question rather opening new post. how to confirm my VMAX is either 10k/20k/40k because we are in evaluation part of implementing RP so just going through pre-requisites of model vs enginuity things..

u guys are like 80X speed in response to users not like other vendor storage forums.
