Ah, the infamous EMC CX. There was some bug in the EMC firmware that
returned a non-standard VPD page 0x83 (pre-spc3 format).
You'll have to check scsi_id, it should have some fixes for it.
Be sure to have the most recent version of scsi_id (resp udev)
installed. It should be called with the option '-p pre-spc3-83'.

Alternatively there is always the possibility of a misconfiguration;
AFAIK EMC has a setting to always return the same information for each
drive; of course this should be switched off ...

Cheers,

Hannes
