How to get the serial number of an harddrive
how can i get the serial number, under pfsense, to see the serial number ?
I don't have pfsense running on real hardware but
camcontrol identify disk (like ada0 or whatever your disk is)
Maybe with….. "Diagnostics --> SMART Status --> Info --> View" ;D
I´ve got it in my pfsense as ptt says
diagnostics –> smart status -->select option "info", device "ada0" pres "View" and brings me this info:
=== START OF INFORMATION SECTION === Device Model: SAMSUNG SV0842D Serial Number: 0158J1FN367480 Firmware Version: MB100-33 User Capacity: 8,455,200,768 bytes [8.45 GB] Sector Size: 512 bytes logical/physical Device is: Not in smartctl database [for details use: -P showall] ATA Version is: ATA/ATAPI-4 T13/1153D revision 17 Local Time is: Fri Sep 25 14:56:36 2015 UTC SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability.

U must have SMART compatibility, support or capabilities (excuse me, don´t remember the specific term) enabled on BIOS.
