How to find World Wide Name (WWN) in Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2

In Windows Server 2003, you have to install "Fibre Channel Information Tool". Perform "fcinfo" to find the  World Wide Name (WWN). In Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2, you can use "Storage Explorer" to show the WWN.

1. At the server, launch "Storage Explorer".
2. Expand "Storage Explorer > Servers > <Server Name>".
