subject: LINUX - release.5.4- verify disk details from linux

with sfdisk -s I can see the disk capacity as the following:

    sfdisk -s
    /dev/cciss/c0d0: 143338560
    total: 143338560 blocks

but how to see also the disk details as disk manufacture ... etc

  • I try the: , but I not get the right info -(:

    hdparm -i /dev/cciss/c0d0

    /dev/cciss/c0d0: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device

SCSI : sdparm /dev/sda (more info)

IDE/SATA : hdparm -i /dev/hda (more info) also hdparm -I can work
(I found a bug report that stated that -i failed but -I worked)

@jennifer - Are you you sure it's a IDE/SATA disk? – Nifle Dec 22 '10 at 9:41
@Jennifer - And I don't think hdparm works on RAID either. – Nifle Dec 22 '10 at 9:48
I have SCSI sata , – jennifer Dec 22 '10 at 10:58
@jennifer - Then you should use sdparm and not hdparm – Nifle Dec 22 '10 at 14:41
