EMC VMAX – Build Location and Model Type

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.

Serial3

The next two numbers of the S/N identify the VMAX Model:
Serial2

These Serial Numbers are visible from a dog tag on the System Bay. You can also issue an Inline command on the service processor to view the S/N (E7,CF):

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