You can use the ListDriveHardware method to list all the drives connected to a node. When used on individual nodes, this method returns drive hardware information. When used on the cluster master node MVIP, this method returns information for all drives on all nodes.


Note The "securitySupported": true line of the method response does not imply that the drives are capable of encryption; only that the security status can be queried. If you have a node type with a model number ending in "-NE", commands to enable security features on these drives will fail.

This method has the following parameter:

Name Description Type Default value Required


Set to true to run this method on all nodes.




Return value

This method has the following return value:

Name Description Type


Returned drive hardware information for the node.
