Finding the firmware revision level of the Fibrechannel card from OpenVMS

Hi,

 

Is there an easy way to find out the firmware revision level of my fibrechannel host bus adapters from the OpenVMS operating system? I have an Rx8640 system with OpenVMS v8.3-1H3.

 

I can do a SHOW DEV/FULL, but it does not show the firmware revision level.

 

Thanks

Andrew

Andrew,

Another way is to use the (SYS/LIB/F)$GETDVI item code FC_HBA_FIRMWARE_REV

The FC$SDA extension (SDA> FC commands) is available since OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1

 

The FC_HBA_FIRMWARE_REV item code is available since V8.3 (with a possible backport to V7.3-2).

FC_HBA_FIRMWARE_REV was backported to V7.3-2, but only the SYS$ and F$ variant; not the LIB$ form.
