Show Hard Drive information

L1 Bithead

For an audit, I need to know the Make/Model/Serial Number of the internal HDD.

I cant seem to locate the appropriate show command on a PAN device...any ideas?

Thanks much

For PA 5000 Series platform, you can try with CLI command:

> show system raid detail


L4 Transporter

With the above command we can see the HDD model number

Example: (D2CSTK251A20-012)

12 indicates 120GB if its 24 its 240GB.

Thanks Hulk and Phoenix. This is helpful, but still need serial numbers too.  Also, this specific FW is a PAN-500, so no raid command available. 

"show system state"

is a wonderful command to pull these details. I tried to pipe the command as  "show system state | match sn" ,  show system state | match disk",  "show system state | match drive" and so on I did not get much wanted to share for reference.

Hello Sir,

We can fetch the same information from root# of the firewall: Please find below, It's a common Unix command


[root@PAN-FW scsi]# pwd


[root@PAN-FW scsi]# cat scsi

Attached devices:

Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00

Vendor: ATA      Model: WDC WD800JD-55MU Rev: 10.0

  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI  SCSI revision: 05

[root@PAN-FW log]# pwd


[root@PAN-FW log]# cat dmesg 

As root access is restricted to end customers, hence i would request you to call PAN support to get the same information from your box.

Hope this helps.

You can use this command:

> debug system disk-smart-info <specify disk>


No root access needed.

> debug system disk-smart-info disk-1

Works for my PA820
