Re: [dm-devel] Question about WWID

Hi All,

Thanks Dr. Hannes Reinecke.

After read some docs, I found out this information about the WWID:

- Its origin is the VPD Pages;
- It's a NAA (Network Address Authority) identifier;
- As a NAA identifier it is unique because its format is:
      3 + 6(from NAA 6) + IEEE Company_id + Vendor Specific Identifier + Vendor Specific Identifier Extension

+ == concatenated

Please, if it is not correct tell me.

Thanks and Regards,

It is using the SCSI Inquiry VPD pages; page 0x83 or, failing that, path 0x80.
