Recognizing storage from server


I need to know what are the storages attached to some of our corporate servers. I run this command from the server only to get a list of WWNs :

# /usr/local/bin/evainfo -a
Devicefile                      Array                   WWNN                            Capacity        Controller/Port/Mode

How do I use the WWNs above to find out the storage that is attached to the server?

For example, the storages that are available for us are like EVA8K, EVA4K, and EMC. These storages of course have their own IP addresses. How do I match the WWNs above and figure out which one of the storages we have is attached to it?

You can review the "List of OUIs commonly seen as WWN Company Identifiers" in Wikipedia

in your case

00:60:B0 Hewlett-Packard - Integrity and HP9000 servers. WWIDs begin with 5006.0b0
00:11:0A Hewlett-Packard - ProLiant servers. Formerly Compaq. WWIDs begin with 5001.10a
00:01:FE Hewlett-Packard - EVA disk arrays. Formerly Digital Equipment Corporation. WWIDs begin with 5000.1fe1 or 6000.1fe1
00:17:A4 Hewlett-Packard - MSL tape libraries. Formerly Global Data Services. WWIDs begin with 200x.0017.a4
00:60:16 EMC Corporation, for CLARiiON/VNX
00:60:48 EMC Corporation, for Symmetrix DMX
00:00:97 EMC Corporation, for Symmetrix VMAX

the code 01FE have references to EVA storage, the rest of WWN must be related the system serial number and the port used to map storage to servers, only need review these values on the administration console or may be in the SAN Switches.

I hope that this can be useful for you
