How do I identify the driver being used for my HBA

I am running HP-UX 11i v2. I need to determine if I am using the Tachyon driver because of the Warning on patch PHKL_36745.

How do I do that?

Thanks!

Hi Ken,

You could use something like this:

fcmsutil /dev/td0

Re: How do I identify the driver being used for my HBA

When I do that exactly I get "Error: Could not open device file.: No such file or directory". Does that mean if I was using it I would have lines with "td" in them in the output from ioscan -f? Generally I am used to seeing fc/fcd for our HBAs.

Hi Ken,

Sorry, please run this command to see what you have:

ioscan -fnC fc

And the substitude accordingly.

Jaime.

Re: How do I identify the driver being used for my HBA

I guess it should be obvious, but am I right in guessing the driver name will identify itself as ...Tachyon... in the "Driver Version" item output from fcmsutil?

If you don't show the output, who should tell?

See what I get:

# fcmsutil /dev/fcd0 vpd
V I T A L P R O D U C T D A T A
--------- ------------- -------

Product Description : HP PCI-X 2.0 4Gb Fibre Channel HBA

Part number : AB378-60101
...


# fcmsutil /dev/fcd0
...
Driver Version = @(#) libfcd.a HP Fibre Channel ISP 23xx & 24xx Driver B.11.23.08.02
/ux/core/isu/FCD/kern/src/common/wsio/fcd_init.c:Sep 24 2007,00:39:23


So driver version is printed above.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi Ken,

Hope you have tried "insf -eC fc"

Re: How do I identify the driver being used for my HBA

R.K.# - The problem was that I used "/dev/td0" in my fcmsutil command as specified by Jaime and that is not present on my system. Thanks for the input.

Jaime and Torsten - thanks - that is what I needed.
