OK,

I can't think of a specific command that will tell you, but using 2 commands and a couple of mins cross referencing will give you the answers.

RP44xx:
Has 6 usuable slots: 3 through to 8 that can have IO added/removed etc.

Do an ioscan -fnk.
Then do either rad-q or olrad -q from the prompt.
You can then very easily work out which slots are occupied, and by what type of HBA.

RP34xx.
Has 4 usable slots
Do the same as above.

Re: finding out the number of free slots in a server?

Hi,

this is a part of an ioscan -fn from a rp4440:

ba 4 0/4 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI-X Bus
Adapter (783)
ba 5 0/5 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI-X Bus
Adapter (783)
ba 6 0/5/2/0 PCItoPCI CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS PCItoPCI Bridge

fc 1 0/5/2/0/4/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP A9784-60001
PCI/PCI-X Fibre Channel FC/GigE Combo Adapter (FC Port 1)


As you can see, there is only 1 entry with "0/4":

ba 4 0/4 lba CLAIMED BUS_NEXUS Local PCI-X Bus
Adapter (783)

This slot(s) is/are empty - slot 3 and 4 here. The slot at hardware path 0/5/2 (slot 6) has a combo card installed.

To get info about all slots, run "olrad -q":

# olrad -q
Driver(s)
Capable
Slot Path Bus Max Spd Pwr Occu Susp OLAR OLD Max Mode
Num Spd Mode
3 0/4/1 128 66 66 Off No N/A N/A N/A PCI-X PCI-X
4 0/4/2 128 66 66 On Yes No Yes N/A PCI-X PCI-X
5 0/5/1 160 66 66 Off No N/A N/A N/A PCI-X PCI-X
6 0/5/2 160 66 66 On Yes No Yes N/A PCI-X PCI-X
7 0/2/1 64 133 133 On Yes No Yes N/A PCI-X PCI-X
8 0/6/1 192 133 133 On Yes No Yes N/A PCI-X PCI-X



Hope this helps!

Torsten.
