Storage Grid Drive Information

I have a Storage Grid configured with redundant SG100s and (12) SG5712s for cold storage. I've been trying to find a way to collect all the drive information within the various nodes. This system is air-gapped and not connected to an active IQ. Each disk shelf has 10 drives, and rather not shut down each node individually to pull the drives and get the required P/N and S/N. The Grid Topology doesn't show this information and there are not methods I've found to display it via CLI. The A250 that is on the front end of the storage shows this info in the OnTap GUI, but the Storage Grid is a different beast. Any thoughts, or inputs would be greatly appreciated.

The SG documentation has all these details and tells you Grid Manager can view that information (not Tenant Manager) directly:

https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/storagegrid-118/monitor/viewing-santricity-system-manager-tab.html

It also mentions that direct access to disk array management UI (SANtricity) is possible.

 

In my case I directly access the SANtricity Web UI (at array management IP (one of the controllers' IP), port 8443 in my case, and under Hardware > Disks I can find those details.

The storage appliance is based on E-Series, so refer to SANtricity documentation. You may also want to get a Storage Array Profile (controller IDs, etc.):

For SG1*, you may try BMC, also documented in the SG docs.
