Determine physical HardDrive size on RedHat 7.3

Hi Guys,

We have several Compaq/HP (G1 & G2) servers running RedHat 7.3.

I need to compile a list of all the HardDrives in these servers.

Some have RAID, some don't, some use SCSI, some IDE.

df -k shows the disk size/space (but that's not what I need).

My manager wants a hardware inventory.

Which command(s) can I use to query this?

I would need to use this in a script, as we have several servers we need to audit.

Thank you.
