    Good Day all, Firstly thank you Promox for the incredible software.
    I'm trying to find out which storage eg (local) belongs to which hard drive eg (/dev/sdc).
    I have removed a storage and I would like to format the hard drive that it was stored on
    but I am unable to see which storage belongs to which hard drive.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    there should be a 'lvm' tab where you can see which lvm volume groups are on which harddrives, then match the storages to the lvm volume groups
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Thank you very much for the help, I can't seem to find a LVM tab anywhere. I'm currently using version 5.2-1.

    i think its available with >= 5.3

    in any case you can do the same on the cli with the lvs/vgs/pvs commands also blkid may be helpful
