Bare metal installations and maintenance booting will require knowledge of location codes.
Volume group management will require knowledge of PVID's, Hdisk names, and DLM names.
The standard AIX utilities "lspv", "lsdev", "lsattr", and "lscfg" provide some of this information

Example scripts to generate this disk identification information exist at the following URL:
