No worries, it is easy to miss--especially if you have a large VMAX with big diskgroups, the diskrgroup headers will fly by quickly and get lost in the drive counts if you dont pipe it to more.

You can identify the model number with the command "symcfg list"

Yeah essentially. VMAX-1 is the same hardware and software as the 20K, just the old name.

A brief history of this if you want some explanation: Prior to the 5876 release we had two models, the VMAX-1 and the VMAXe. When 5876 came out, we released what would technically be the VMAX-2 but was named the 40K and the VMAX-1 would now be called the 20K and the VMAXe became the 10K to make the family names consistent. That being said we didn't want to rename the model names of existing customer frames, so all existing frames remained with their original model name even when upgraded to 5876 as seen in Solutions Enabler. All newly shipped frames with 5876 would receive the new naming convention and be listed in Solutions Enabler as the 10K, 20K or 40K. There has been a hardware refresh on the 10K so the current one is no longer identical to the previous VMAXe, but the VMAX-1 and the 20K are identical in all but the model name.

Re: How to find the Drive types in vmax

Hello,

How can I list the volumes, that are present in a particular disk group, using SYMCLI? For example, if I have volumes 03FA-0400 in disk_group 1 (FC, 15k rpm), how can I filter this out (with Volume Label). I tried using symdisk -sid xxx list -by_diskgroup . It doesnt show me the volume Label.

symdev list -sid 123 -disk_group <diskgroup#>

then filter using grep/findstr

You can also try this command:

symdisk -sid xxx -disk_group X list -v -hypers

If you want to list the hypers on each disk.
