Configuration settings of Fibre Channel Adapters in Servers

Damian was looking to get some module info without shutting down the system.

 

******************************************************************************************************************

Is it possible to determine the settings of an FC Adapter without rebooting? i.e. BIOS version, Configuration Settings.

 

Specifically I want to know if the HBA is configured Point-to-Point, Fixed Speed (and what speed), BIOS Version (also Enabled/Disabled)... I think that’s it.  From memory, I had to reboot the server to get into the Boot Settings to determine the HBA settings... want to know if this is still the case.

If it’s a Qlogic HBA, SANsurfer will give you what you are looking for.  I haven’t use the

Emulex utility.

Any other suggestions? How would you do this?
