ab378a and ab378b

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the difference between the ab378a and the ab378b? Also is there a way to tell them apart? HP part surfer list the ab378-69101 part number for the a version and the b version as well.

Thank you
Jon

The AB378A is not supported in some servers while the B is:
rx1620; rx2620; rx4640; rp34xx; rp44xx

I'd guess that the B is a newer (compatbile) revision which can replace the A.

Take a look at this link
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/J6374-90063/ch01s05.html

which says :
The AB378B is an updated version of the AB378A, with support for a broader range of servers. It is backward compatible with the AB378A.

There are several ways to tell the difference, although as pointed out, it is only relevant for certain servers.

ioscan -kf is one good way to tell. If you see AB378-60001 in the ioscan output, it means you have an AB378A. AB378-60101 in the ioscan output means you have an AB378B.

The command "fcmsutil /dev/fcdX vpd" will also show these identifiers.
