The VMAX Serial Numbers are generated based on build location and model type of the VMAX. If your S/N begins with ‘HK19’ the VMAX was manufactured in Hopkinton, begins with ‘CK29’ then it was manufactured in Cork and ‘CN49’ means it was manufactured in China.

Note: DO NOT change your serial number as all FA WWN’s are generated based on the serial number assigned to the VMAX.
