    Hi Tim

    I'll pass this over to our storage PM and ask him to take a look.

    Regards

    Hi Tim,

    This feature is already implemented. We generate a unique SCSI_ID for use in the OnApp platform that is used and corresponds to the UI value. To use it please run the following command from your HV:

    [root@192.168.1.24 ~]# onapp_scsi_id /dev/<drive path>

    e.g.

    [root@192.168.1.24 ~]# onapp_scsi_id /dev/cciss/c0d0

    returns ID_SCSI_SERIAL and ID_SERIAL.

    In the UI the drive will then be shown with (ID_SERIAL)_(ID_SCSI_SERIAL).

    Hope that this helps. If not please add a comment on this thread.

    Thanks!

    Hi Stuart,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Unfortunately, with an LSI2108 controller JBOD is not supported so each drive has to be raid 0 and that doesn't pass through the actual drive serial number as the scsi id. I see the functionality you describe on HV's with JBOD cards. I suppose what I'm looking for is a method of getting past the limitations of the LSI2108 based cards.

    Regards,
    Tim
