Get firmware version of I/O cards on HPUX Integrity systems

We are trying to get the firmware version from the I/O cards without having to go the the EFI shell to get it? Is there a way other than having to bring the system down and going from EFI as all the documents say?

 

Checking Card Firmware Versions (Integrity) EFI Drivers

In nPars mode from the EFI Shell, use the drivers command to determine the version. The VERSION column lists the version. For example: Shell> search all Shell> drivers

 

Is there an online way to tell the firmware of the I/O cards like FC and SCSI?

Re: Get firmware version of I/O cards on HPUX Integrity systems

There is, but it depends on the card type.

 

For fibre cards you can try this:

   # fcmsutil /dev/XXX vpd   (where xxxx is the device file for the card - ie /dev/fcd0 - this isnt supported on all HBA models)

 

For U320 SCSI cards using the 'mpt' driver you can use the following:

   # mptutil /dev/mptX    (where X is the device instance for the card - ie /dev/mpt0)

 

For HP-UX 11.31 you can try the following on other SCSI cards:

   # scsimgr get_info -H 0/0/10/1/0/6/0      (hardware path to the controller)

 

For SAS controllers:

   # sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasdX

 

For Smart Array controllers:

   # sautil /dev/cissX

 

Not sure if I missed anything, but for other cards, you may have to use CSTM's infolog to see if the card reports the data you are looking for.
