Differentiate local storage from SAN LUN - Quick HOWTO


This is the nice information which i found on web. Its very useful. In many scenarios we want to Differentiate with local disks from SAN LUN. 

In the example below orange is a virtual disk on an internal RAID controller, green is a CD-ROM connected via an IDE controller, and the rest are SAN-connected SCSI disks where "hostN" refers to the instance of the Host Bus Adapter they are connected to.

 # ls -l /sys/block/*/device

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 0 Sep 19 02:11 /sys/block/cciss!c0d0/device -> ../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:04.0/0000:0d:00.0/disk0 
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 0 Sep 19 02:11 /sys/block/hda/device -> ../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.1/ide0/0.0
