Hello,

I have been asked to report on all the servers that are connected to SAN. We have a few hundred servers. These servers are Windows 2008 R2.

Could you please help me with a script or a way to get this info.

Thanks

wmi logicaldisk will include the information
DriveType, but I think the SAN resource will be seen/reflected the same way C: is as a localDrive

I think you should be looking/generating this report from the SAN.
There you have the allocated LUNS, and the hosts to which each LUN is allocated.

This will give you a narrowed down list.
you can then use powershell to remotely connect to each server's wmi interface and query the logicaldisk.
The result will then based on partition/lun size would need to be combined with the SAN report to complete ....
The below describes the class.
and includes a VB script example.

The following is a powershell example to query WMI.
