Re: Version Firmware

For cell based servers only the sysrev output is complete and correct.

Hope this helps!

Hi Torstend,

Re: Version Firmware

HI,

This response indicates that the command "machinfo" get BMC version.

this correct??

If you need the MP firmware version, I have to run command sysrev

Re: Version Firmware

Well, it writes about a BMC version, but the RX8640 has no BMC.


Don't care!



You can see, you really need to use sysrev if you want information about firmware.
Each line in this output is important. "machinfo" cannot get this.




I got this from a similar system:

Firmware info:
Firmware revision: 9.048
FP SWA driver revision: 1.18
IPMI is supported on this system.
BMC firmware revision: 4.01



So the firmware shown is really the IPF firmware. BMC in this case is MP firmware.




So you either get the machinfo from a different system than the sysrev (?) or your machinfo command needs some patching.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Version Firmware

Additional information.

Much better information on non cell based systems, e.g. a rx3600:

# machinfo
...
Firmware info:
Firmware revision: 04.15
FP SWA driver revision: 1.18
IPMI is supported on this system.
BMC firmware revision: 5.26


> sysrev

MP FW : F.02.25
BMC FW : 05.26
System FW : ROM A 04.15, ROM B 04.15, Boot ROM B


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
