Locate Physical MAC address from teamed NICs

Can anyone tell me 'programatically' how I can access the burned-in mac address on our teamed NICs?

If I try using WMI it reports the 'virtual' address of the teamed nics.

If I look at the properties on each NIC on the System Management Homepage I can see the information that I need.
Can I access this information from a script? Is the burned-in physical address stored in the HPSIM database anywhere?

Thanks in advance for all your help,
Graham.

points for all replies.

Re: Locate Physical MAC address from teamed NICs

HP SIM has a report on this under Options --> Manage Reports --> Network Interface - Servers (sample is attached)

Re: Locate Physical MAC address from teamed NICs

Hi David,

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I've seen this report but it only gives the 'virtual' mac address for teamed NICs.

Example :
Nic A mac address "aaaaaaaa"
Nic B mac address "bbbbbbbb"

Teamed Nic mac address "aaaaaaaa"

How do I find the mac address of Nic B? It reports as "aaaaaaaa" when using WMI.

The HPSIM report only shows the Teamed Address (i.e. "aaaaaaaa")

Thank You,
Graham.

Re: Locate Physical MAC address from teamed NICs

What version of HP SIM? There was a data collection bug fixed in HP SIM 5.1 that wouldn't collect the physical NICs in a teamed set up.

Yes it is HPSIM 5.1 we're using.
Could I be as bold as to ask for a link to the patch/fix?

Or even the patch details?

Thank you,
Graham.

It was rolled into the build and not delivered as a discrete patch.

Re: Locate Physical MAC address from teamed NICs

I have the exact same need. Did you ever get a decent way to gather all the 'burned-in' macs on a system? I'd prefer WMI but an HP SIM solution would be acceptable.

Going to fix HPSIM to get the correct information
