What is the best way to find out all the LUN names and associated UIDs in the  VMware 6 Infrastructure.   This to be presented under each storage array and  as a all-in-one list.

LUN is abbreviation of Logical Unit Number
do you want to spell out numbers - like zero, one, two, three?

Wanted the information in the following format  for each Storage Array and was wondering if that is possible:

LUN Number  |    LUN NAME     | LUN Capacity    |    LUN  UID


I checked RV Tools and that does give  the Address associated with each Host and path.

I dont want to sound rude, but you want to make too much out of a single number.

Lun number - just put some random number
Lun name - spell it out
Lun capacity - no idea - sum of numbers above or below?
Lun UID - another random number?
