How to identify the SAN Disk in Windows 2008?

In order to perform a storage testing, one of the server were allocated with two different storage XtremIO and FED.
Both the lun were added to server as a drive. However, we had a confusion to find which drive was from which storage. Luckily, we were able to track the luns using diskpart.

1. Open command prompt.
2. Enter “Diskpart”.
3. Enter “list volume”.
4. Type “Select volume *” (* to be replaced with volume ID Ex:C,D,E/0,1,2, etc)
5. Execute “Detail Disk”

You would now be displayed with disk details and more information, which will help you to track your lun.

Thanks,
