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?

gheist - who ever you are, you may be knowledgeable but please do not show off your  unwanted knowledge by taunting people.   I had a specific requirement as we are in the process of  setting up a DR site   and we needed  very specific information.  If you do not wish to contribute please move on.  Is there are specific rule at  "Experts Exchange" paid forum what to ask and how to ask - if so let me know.  Thanks.

If RV Tools, does not provide the information, You would have to create a script using PowerCLI.
