search for "Firmware"

Shalom,

If you have installed PSP, the insight web interface also has information on firmware.

http://hostname:2381 or maybe 2301

Re: How to check firmware version on DL380 server?

it depends which flavor of Unix you use on Proliant , for example my customer use RedHat Enterprise and following commands are useful:

dmesg | grep -i cpu

More useful:
cat /proc/version
cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/meminfo

(Check in under directory /proc to find more..)

Very useful one:
dmidecode

And recommend you to visit to find more and more at the address:

You can also try using "dmi-decode". For example:

dmidecode -s bios-version
dmidecode -s bios-release-date
dmidecode -s system-product-name
dmidecode -s system-serial-number

etc. Depending on what it is that you want to find out, this works fine.

to check SCSI or FC HBA firmware and bios version, use the command:

#cat /proc/scsi//

- substitute this field with FC HBA's driver name like qla2x00 or lpfc or mptspi

- substitute this field with port number on the FC HBA like 0,1, etc..
