How do I determine all the current firmware levels for various HW installed

I do not have access to the MP so I can not use the sysrev option.

Is there a way to find out all the various HW firmware levels outside of the MP?

The first server I need to get the firmware levels for is noted below:

model:
9000/800/L1000-44

uname -a:
HP-UX servername B.11.11 U 9000/800 520706547 unlimited-user license

Thanks in advance!

Re: How do I determine all the current firmware levels for various HW installed

If you have diagnostics installed, that would probably be the easiest.

cstm - character interface
mstm - menu interface
xstm - GUI interface

Ok, thanks! Can you elaborate a bit more as to how I would use those diagnostics?

Run

# echo "selclass qualifier cpu;info;wait;il"|/usr/sbin/cstm

and search for "PDC".

For GSP firmware you need GSP access.

Hope this helps!

You would need to go through the diagnostics, select each card or component and look at its information. Unfortunately there's no easy way I know of the get the information in one shot.

The server itself has only GSP and PDC firmware. HBAs like SCSI or FC are covered by PDC or drivers.

Hope this helps!

Ok...I think I may have actually asked this question way back when once before...all of these responses are sounding vaguely familar...thanks (again)! I'll add these to my documentation so that I will not have to repeat this question again.
