lsmpio -q doesn't list the volume name for Infinidat Devices. It does for other storage vendors. Need Infinidat-specific code for lsmpio -q output

The customer opened Salesforce Case TS010299650, noting that lsmpio -q output for their Infinidat storage does not display the volume name. Sample output: root@HCMDVE2AGADM002:/>lsmpio -q Device Vendor Id Product Id Size Volume Name --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- dac1 NFINIDAT InfiniBox 0.00MiB - hdisk0 NFINIDAT InfiniBox 41.91GiB - hdisk4 NFINIDAT InfiniBox 41.91GiB - hdisk5 NFINIDAT InfiniBox 48.43GiB - root@HCMDVE2AGADM002:/> Notice for IBM storage, we do display the volume name: (255)[sanlab42] / # lsmpio -q Device Vendor Id Product Id Size Volume Name --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- hdisk0 AIX VDASD 25.00GiB - hdisk1 IBM 2145 320.00GiB sanlab42_vgscan_test0 hdisk2 IBM 2145 320.00GiB sanlab42_vgscan_test1 hdisk3 IBM 2145 320.00GiB sanlab42_vgscan_test2 hdisk4 IBM 2145 320.00GiB sanlab42_vgscan_test3 hdisk5 IBM 2145 10.00GiB sanlab42_0 hdisk6 IBM 2145 10.00GiB sanlab42_1 hdisk7 IBM 2145 10.00GiB sanlab42_2 # We do the same for some other vendors, such as Dell/EMC. The customer has requested that we add Infinidat storage to our vendor-specific list for lsmpio -q output. This makes it easier to identify specific luns on the storage-side when issues are seen that require intervention/correction.
