How do I find the serial/model number of a hard drive?

To find the model or serial number of a hard drive you can use hdparm and the device name of the hard drive you need the serial number of.

hdparm -i /dev/sda

Replacing "/dev/sda" with the device of the hard drive the information is needed for which will return data as follows.

Model=<model>, FwRev=<revision>, SerialNo=<serial>
