Drive name formats

When a node is part of a functioning cluster, the drives it is connected to are accessible using a simple, consistent drive name format. The drive name is independent of what nodes the drive is physically connected to and from which node you are accessing the drive.

The drive name format is a concatenation of four components:

<stack_id>.<shelf_id>.<bay>.<position>

Note: During system boot, before the node has joined the cluster, or if certain key cluster components become unavailable, drive names revert to the classic format based on physical connectivity.
