Re: VC Firmware Version

Hi Miquelvk,

You may check the VC and FC firmware from Onboard administrator in GUI mode.

vcutil is another utility to check the firmware

e.g.
vcutil -a

Commands:
version
report
update
discover

another utility which is used to display and update firmware on Virtual connect module is VCSU

for more info check the user guide

hope this helps,
Aftab

Re: VC Firmware Version

Hi there,

Onboard administrator >> enclosure settings >> Interconnect Bay Information

page 166 of OA guide explains the rest
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00705292/c00705292.pdf


Due to some reason if firmware revision of VC interconnect module is not listed or listed incorrect;ly in GUI mode Run the VC utility to get the information as shared in the previous post.

to correct this problem.. failover to redandant OA, reseat the primary OA and check the tab again...

hope this helps,

Re: VC Firmware Version

Ok, i used the VCSU

Re: VC Firmware Version

Hi there,

it should list the firmware revision as well.. could be some issue with firmware..

generate the report using the same utility and check the report whether firmware revision is listed there.

from OA GUI >> enclosure setting generate show all report and check the firmware revision

thanks

Re: VC Firmware Version

Depending on the type of VCFC module and your OA fw, you might not see the VCFC firmware revision.
But the OA does report the VC-Ethernet firmware. You can see this by selecting the VC_Ethernet modulein the GUI. Or run the Enclosure Info - Enclosure Settings - Configuration Scripts - "Click here to view the inventory". The resulting text file includes a series of SHOW statements. Look for "show interconnect".
The OA cli show commands can also be run from the OA cli.

Re: VC Firmware Version

Hi Miquel,

you do not have any VC-Module in your Backplane! Ethernet-Passtru and FC-Switches
are not VC! Therefore you will not see a version....

Re: VC Firmware Version

Ops, thaks for all guys, i thought that VC was a software not a hardware. Sorry for my ignorance.

Thanks a lot, now i can update the other items

Re: VC Firmware Version

Hi Miquelvk,

I check the interconnect list and agree with the previous post... there isn't any virtual connect interconnect module installed in the c7000 enclosure.

Virtual connect Enterprise Manager and VCutil are software used to manage your VC interconnect modules

I guess report is fair enough....

thanks anyway for bringing it here... will be helpful for others.

Cheers!
