Type the following command to determine the fibre channel target WWN:
# systool -c fc_transport -v
You will get node name (FC WWN) and port name of the storage processor port. Type the following command, to determine the mapping between SCSI HBTL addresses and the disks:
# sg_map -x
See sg_map and systool command man page for more details.
