Finding hard drive serial numbers in Linux and Windows
In Linux I prefer using smartctl
smartctl -i /dev/sda
hdparm -I /dev/sda | grep Serial
Megacli RAid card —
megacli -PDList -aALL
hdparm -I /dev/sdX | grep -i ‘serial’
/usr/StorMan/arcconf getconfig 1
If you have many hard drives like me, use this instead to help you know which is which: wmic diskdrive get name,size,model,serialnumber
You can use the command line interface to check on the drive serial information.
You can check for the binary in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adaptec\….
there are three possible directories: Adaptec Storage Manager, maxView Storage Manager, or Adaptec Event Monitor. Change to that directory and arcconf.exe should be in there.
Once you are there run:
<path>\arcconf.exe getconfig 1 LD
<path>\arcconf.exe getlogs 1 dead tabular
<path>\arcconf.exe getlogs 1 device tabular
