Blade Firmware info

Alpesh was looking for some help:






Currently doing assessment of c7000 for firmware upgrade and would like to know how to gather  firmware information from OA for blades (NIC / Smart Array / SAS Disk / HBAs) ?




Mike replied:






Currently you cannot gain that information from the OA.  The OA will show you ROM bios, iLo, and OA FW.  To get revs on NIC, Disk, HBA’s, etc you need to work through the OS, (or offline diags).  You must use various tools like dmidecode, ethtool, hpacucli for Linux systems, and similar tools for Windows and other OSs.
