    Remote disk is named as "0m.i1.5L82" in the output of  the command "sysconfig -r",  what does the fields of " 0m.i1.5L82" mean?  Can we identify a disk location by these fields of " 0m.i1.5L82"?  I found the disk naming rule of MetroCluster FC, but not one of  MetroCluster IP.  I look forward to your help, thanks.

 

the output of "sysconfig -r" is as follow:

Take a look here.

https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-metrocluster/maintain/concept_identifying_storage_in_a_mcc_ip_configuration.ht...

 

When you view shelf information from a MetroCluster site, all remote drives are on 0m, the virtual iSCSI host adapter. This means that the drives are accessed via the MetroCluster IP interfaces. All other drives are local.

 

After identifying whether a shelf is remote (on 0m), you can further identify the drive or shelf by the serial number or, depending on shelf ID assignments in your configuration, by shelf ID.

what do you mean with ADP? if you have ADP each disk will be listed out 3 times as P1-P3. however the shelf and bay info will stay the same.

Hello

Agreed it will be listed, but the pool 1 naming convention based on adapter 0m and 0v does not correlate with what disk is what.
Or maybe ihe commands I run, for example:
Disk partition show
Etc..
Make it difficult to understand, unless there is an underlying command that makes it easy to understand.

Apologies, for not being clearer earlier
