Re: How to find the firmware details of hba card

Your result will look similar to this:

# fcmsutil /dev/fcd0 vpd
V I T A L P R O D U C T D A T A
--------- ------------- -------

Product Description : "HP 2Gb Fibre Channel FC/GigE-TX Combo Adapter
"

Part number : "A9784-60002"

Engineering Date Code : "A-4550"

Part Serial number : "PRA0......"

Misc. Information : "PW=25W;PCI 66MHZ;PCI-X 133MHZ"

Mfd. Date : "4611"

Check Sum : 0xa7

EFI version : "001.47"

ROM Firmware version : "003.003.154"

Asset Tag : "NA"





But remember, the most important is the driver.

Your driver is outdated!

The driver will "overlay" the cards firmware while the OS is running. The firmware on the card is used while booting over this card.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: How to find the firmware details of hba card

The XL2 chip does not use any HBA firmware. It is purely hardware based.

For boot purposes, there is IODC (for PA systems) and EFI (for IA systems) which is considered firmware, but if you are not booting through the card then you don't use the boot firmware.
