Re: [FishMonger] Finding Unix Logical name(s)
[In reply to]
We need to scan machines and directories for some complicated, program level, dependencies and cross reference the information with information from other sources. Unfortunately, the information is not necessarily uniform. Some use physical and some logical names but most use logical names which is good. The problem is that any logical machine may see a different population of mounts, and thus different directories, which means that each logical machine needs to be scanned on its own.
You have confirmed my suspicion that there is no common way to correlate logical and physical machine. Fortunately, I've got from the administrators an up-to-date and refreshable file that correlate the aforementioned entities, so my business problem is resolved by at large, except that I still have to be careful when running the scan and provide it with an accurate logical name machine which is not easily verifiable.
It still boggles my mind that the information of what logical machine we are running on is not readily available.
I do not know what is an xy problem.
