QUICK SSA QUESTION - AIX

AIXers, I'm looking for a quicker way to determine the physical locations of ssa drives in a SSA drawer w/o having to use diag/ssa service aides for location. I'm trying to draw a schematic going through diags is pretty tedious. Does anyone know of a quicker and/or better way? Thanks in advance...

    you could try to get maymap from your IBM-friend ;-)
    (it's not aix-standard, says "IBM internal use only")
    below sample output (maybe distorted due to linebreaking)
    gives you a nice drawing of your hosts and ssa-disks/cabling

    maymap is the way to go.
    Apart from that you will probably find that the SSA drives are assigned
    pdisk numbers in serial number order, so if you are able to set up your SSA
    drives in serial number order it should make things a lot simpler. Not sure
    if this is standard or not, but it works for me on AIX 4.3.3.
    Regards,
