About Device IDs

When you create a volume, you must specify a volume name. When the volume is created, Storage Center assigns a unique index and device ID to the volume and attempts to determine the volume serial number from each of its mapped servers (if the serial number is exposed by the operating system). On subsequent commands, if you want to identify a volume, you can use:

  • Volume name or index
  • Device ID
  • Serial number (only when running an operating system that exposes volume serial numbers to the user)

When specifying a device ID, replace the string with the device ID name or any string that contains the device ID name. For example, to specify the device ID for a VMWare device, you can use either the device ID name (shown in bold) or the entire Universally Unique Identifier (UUID):

–deviceid 
                              6000d31000063000000000000000001c
                           
–deviceid 0200020000
                              6000d31000063000000000000000001c436f6d70656c
                           

To display a volume device ID or volume serial number, use the volume show command.
