To locate a particular drive serial number:

In this example, we are looking for the serial number of /sdc

Substitute the drive letter with the one you are search for such as /sdb or /sdf

Logon as root:

Type: hdparm -i /dev/sdc

The output will give you the hard drive serial number.

To locate the physical slot of the hard drives:

Logon as root:

Type: lshw -c storage -class disk

The output will show the the physical slots the drives are attached to.  Physical ID's should begin with slot 0. (drive 1 is in slot zero as an example)

Run the above commands to identify a particular drive, then power off the system and physically check the drive serial number to confirm.
