hpux 11.11 fcmsutil - can't see firmware of hba's

Hello all,

I'm trying to gather the firmware version for a small group of legacy hpux 11.11 servers

normally I could expect fcmsutil /dev/td0 to show the information for the tachyon card, including the firmware. I only get the following inforamtion

Vendor ID is = 0x00103c
Device ID is = 0x001029
XL2 Chip Revision No is = 2.3
PCI Sub-system Vendor ID is = 0x00103c
PCI Sub-system ID is = 0x00128c
Topology = PTTOPT_FABRIC
Link Speed = 2Gb
Local N_Port_id is = 0x020a00
N_Port Node World Wide Name = 0x50060b0000257fc9
N_Port Port World Wide Name = 0x50060b0000257fc8
Driver state = ONLINE
Hardware Path is = 0/4/1/0
Number of Assisted IOs = 1113298337
Number of Active Login Sessions = 2
Dino Present on Card = NO
Maximum Frame Size = 896
Driver Version = @(#) PATCH_11.11: libtd.a : Jun 28 2002, 11:08:35, PHSS_26799


I've tried to see if fcmsutil /dev/td1 vpd and that also doesn't display the firmware vrsion.

Is there something specicial about the tachyon cards that I'm missing as to why I can't see the firmware version ?

thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt,

I think it depends on the kind of FC card you have. For example XL2 cards seems to not use any firmware. See what posted by an HP engineer in the following thread regarding XL2 chip:

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1189821

So I wouldn't expect to see firmware version for all kind of cards.

HTH.

Best regards,
Fabio

You may try

# fcmsutil /dev/... vpd


But some cards cannot be updated. The firmware will totally "replaced" by the driver.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

already tried vpd - that's not got the info.

looks like the tachyon card is totally software provided for it's firmware.
