We really need to see what the serial number of the drives are. Please can we add this feature.
Running this command yields a result for sata drives...
smartctl -d sat+megaraid,1 -a /dev/sda
...yet if the drive is behind a raid controller in the case of LSI 9260-8i (which doesn't support JBOD), there is no way to know what drive is in what bay, unless the serial number is kept and the bay noted.
If OnApp could use the disks serial number with their unique ID, we would kill two birds with one stone. It would assist in asset management and RMA's for under warranty drives.
