If it's a VPS or VM, you are abstracted from the hardware, including disks. Or is your CWP server installed as bare metal?

f you really want to display only the hardware, and not RAID volumes and partitions that might be seen by the OS as physical drives. You might want to try lshw

Code: [Select]
lshw -class disk -short
