Decode VMWare's NAA or WWN

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm searching for a few days different forum/discussions for an answer but couldn't find a concrete answer so I hope that someone could help me here.

I'm looking for a way of decoding VMWare's NAA or LUN WWN/WWID when having attached LUN's from VPLEX, VMAX and VNX/Clarriion. What I'm trying to find out most from the NAA is the serial number of the box, a way to identify the box in order to create a naming convention for datastores.

Until now I was able only to "decode" the NAA when having LUNs from VMAX

eg: EMC Fibre Channel Disk (naa.6000097000029260XYZW533030393436)

I've replaced the last 4 digits from box id for privacy reasons.

Hope that you could help me with a way of finding the id for VPLEX and VNX/Clariion.

Raul

For VPLEX, the serial number is not embedded in the WWN. There is however a representation of the VVol_id. and this can use used in the VPLEX (GUI or drill-down cli) to map to the back end array / lun.

Refer to EMC KB article :  http://support.emc.com/kb/15497
