On typical Linux and *nix systems there are a lot of options to show what kind of disks are plugged into the server. Some admins might prefer smartctl, others lspci, then again there is dmidecode, hwinfo, etc. Unfortunately none of these commands exist on SmartOS.

Luckily I came across the following command to list the disks seen by the OS:

iostat -E
sd0       Soft Errors: 0 Hard Errors: 0 Transport Errors: 0
Vendor: Single   Product: Flash Reader     Revision: 1.00 Serial No:

sd1       Soft Errors: 0 Hard Errors: 0 Transport Errors: 0
Vendor: HP       Product: LOGICAL VOLUME   Revision: 5.70 Serial No: 123456789
