How to detect HP NIC Model # from Linux OS

HP Advisory: c04258304   lists various NICs by HP model number.  All of my systems are RHEL 6.  Doing an lspci lists the Broadcom model number.  Does anyone know a method to get the HP model number of the NIC from the OS?  I wanted to write a script to automatically detect if one of these NICs was installed on the server and remove the approriate firmware file from swpackages before running hpsum.

 

Thanks!

Use "lspci -v" and grep for "Subsystem". Assuming you have a up to date pci-ids file this should show the HP name of the part (but sadly not the part number).

By the way there is also the new SPP 2014.02.0(B) released that should address Advisory c04258304.

Ah!  Great!  That works.  I was just on the SPP web page yesterday or Monday and saw a Maintenance bundle.  I'll go check again.  Maybe they released it after I looked.  :)

 

Thanks again!
