I’ve got a client that has a couple of Storwize V5000 storage arrays. I needed to get the serial numbers for them today, but I could not find them in the GUI?
As usual things are much simpler at command line, SSH into the storage array and simply use the following command;
Note: As you can see, I’ve got one Controller (with the cans in it,) and one expansion shelf. The first part of the serial denotes the model e.g. 2078-24C denotes v5000 Series controller, so in this case the serial number would be 2078-24C / 78A3381 and I’ve got an Expansion Shelf 2078-24E / 78D2CTT.
