  • Internal/External Disks

    How to find out/differentiate between local and/or SAN/NAS disks on windows servers? I have used net use command but of no use.

    Re: Internal/External Disks

    It's more likely to be something in Disk Management, than "net use"

      Re: Internal/External Disks

      Local disk can be found on the disk management
      SAN/NAS disk if you have disk other than that in disk management disk bars


      to verify that there are SAN/NAS go to devmgmt.msc
      and then find Emulex network cards of third part HBA connected to the server

      eg: if you have WWN defined on network cards eg emulex then you are connected to SAN

      do reply your opinon on this

      Thanks
      all

        Disk Management shows all volumes including internal and external. Cant differentiate between them.

        There are no HBA cards only teamed Network cards.

        The only way in some cases when I go to properties find NetApp Drivers, by this I confirm it as external(not everytime only in some cases on some servers rest I find HP drivers itself)

          im fairly sure DevMgmt will actually tell you what sort of disk it is


          #for instance on my XP Desktop currently, it shows Samsun MMCRE64g8mpp
          I recall seeing on servers things like "virtual Disk" and other comments

          basically - if it's a local disk, it should tell you what sort of disk it is..

            In addition to DevMgmt, you can also get this using DISKPART...

            C:\>DISKPART

            On computer: SERVERNAME

            DISKPART> SELECT DISK 4

            Disk 4 is now the selected disk.

            DISKPART> DETAIL DISK

              that's ctually excellent - because it pretty clearly tells you it's a SAN disk (not aware of any internal disks ever having a multi-path)
