GSP card?

From HPUX 11.0, as I can know the type of GSP card that have my servers (L and N class). ? Thanks in advance.

Re: GSP card?

Hi Jorge,

From the GSP prompt enter the HELP section


You should get a display like:

====== GSP Help ==================================(Operator)===========
Hardware Revision 8 Firmware Revision A.01.12 Oct 23, 2002, 13:53:42

So this is a A.01.12 Rev GSP

Re: GSP card?

I am not sure if I could correctly understand your question but I am under the impression that you are trying to figure out the version of th GSP firmware from the unix command prompt. If this is the question, unfortunately there is no utility I know that can be run from a command prompt to provide you this information. You need to login to the GSP port and type HE. You will see the firmare revision on this screen.

Re: GSP card?

Jeff, Mel:

In reality I need to know if the GSP card installed is "A6696B GSP card" or another (without opening the server).

Thanks in advance

Re: GSP card?

If you called HP and gave them the server serial number they might be able to tell you from that or at least how to match the hardware revision to the hardware model of the GSP. It could be a slow process though if you have allot of servers.

See http://docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/A5191-96022/A5191-96022.html

Chapter "Cabling and Power-up", subchapter "Guardian Service Processor".

At least on L class/rp54xx, the hardware paths for revision A GSP are 0/0/4/0.0, 0/0/4/0.1, and 0/0/4/0.2. For revision B, the paths are different: 0/0/4/1.0, 0/0/4/1.1 and 0/0/4/1.2. The same thing may or may not be true for N class.

I think that could help in identifying the GSP type, if you are trying to do that through software.

Another clue could be that revision B has 10/100 network connection, while revision A is 10 only.
