  • This was tested on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) LTS Server. It returns the name of the symlink within /dev/disk/by-id for the physical drive you specify. Change /dev/sda to the one you want, and replace ata- with scsi- or the appropriate type for your drive. I used this to pre-configure grub-pc during a non-interactive install because I had to tell it which disk to install grub on, and physical disks don't have a UUID such as that blkid provides.

  • The lspv command displays the information about the physical volume if the specific physical volume name is specified. If you do not add flags to the lspv command, by default all the available physical volumes are printed along with the following information: * Physical disk name. * Physical volume identifiers (PVIDs). * The volume group, if any, that the physical volume belongs to or the label,if any, locked with the lkdev command. * The state of the volume group. Active-When the volume group is varied on. Concurrent-When the volume group is varied on in the concurrent mode. Locked-When the physical volume is locked with the lkdev command. **************************************************************************************** In the example, the iw406 system has two hard disks.
