That may very well be (unfortunately dont have any SAN attached storage to test it with), so perhaps I was a bit hasty with my response.

If thats the case then one has to find the LUNs that participate in a given volume and then determine if those are local/SAN LUNs, and that can vary from platform to platform and from SAN to SAN IIRC.

Probably best to ring up the storage or sys admin.

Given this is a VxFS question maybe a vx* command: vxinfo/vxprint/vxdisk/vxdg, etc.
