It might help for you to give one or two examples of what you want to
do, and which storage system you want to manage.
But I think the short answer is: no. It's not the SCSI disk (that the
host sees) that is managed, but the array controller.
The HSG80 uses a pseudo disk (the controller tells the host there is a
disk but no physical disk exists, a small amount of memory is used to
hold data) to pass commands to the controllers that the StorageWorks
Script Server (SWCC) application uses, but HS commands are sent to the
controllers not SCSI mode commands.
The XP12000 (like all of the XP line, I think) uses a dedicated LAN
communication path for configuration management, and the EVAs use the
SAN. Both use a specialized application on a Windows server (though
there have been rumors of HPUX becoming a management server) that
needs to be involed in configuration changes. There are remote
managment applications for both of these array families that talk to
the management applications via LAN / TCPIP, but that's not talking
via SCSI mode from the host.

Does anyone know if it is possible to access a Fibre Channel SAN disk's

It would be particularly useful if someone had code that would allow the
reading and setting of the UDID field.
