Possible to get hardware sub-model (xxxx-69001) with OS commands?

Hello there,

You may have heard that the A6795-69001 2GB Fibre Channel card is subject to some manner of recall by HP, though probably not since it only applies to a very limited subset of replacement parts.

What I'm wondering is whether there's a way to identify this level of part number, -69001 as opposed to -62001, with OS commands, rather than physically inspecting the card.

I doubt it, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Thanks!

Hi,
Did you try ioscan -funC fc ? In "Description" column, there may be part number...

Use the fcmsutil command with the 'vpd' argument. The syntax is: fcmsutil /dev/td? vpd

For example (from one of my servers - with some slight reformatting of the data):

# fcmsutil /dev/td0 vpd
