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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
