run /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/scan (unix) or %install path%\veritas\volmgr\bin\scan  on windows.

if you have this robotic already configured with master server, just run "tpconfig -d" there

You can match the drive number in a library by SCSI ID. Just go to the library web management page or to its LCD panel, write down the SCSI ID for a drive with its number in a library. Once having that You can easly configure the NBU having that information. Yet another oportunity is to configure Your device via device configurator wizzard.

On robot control host - run scan.
In the "changer" section, the drive serial numbers are listed - first one should be drive 1, second drive 2 etc...  These are the physical positions of the drives in the robot/ library.

On a media server you can run tpconfig -d - this lists the drives and the paths according to the netback config.
It also lists the drive instance number according to NBU.  Then from scan on the media, you can trace the drive path, and get the serial number.  Look this up from the scan output "changer" section on the robot control host and you have the complete story.
