status of hardware in HpUx

Hi all, 


We would like to know a HP Utility or any Unix command that can give the exact status of PCI Gigabit Ethernet cable (lan cable) We had tried to execute

'lanscan' & 'ioscan -fnC lan'. 


The status appears to be the same when the cable is plugged & unplugged and also when the lan is disabled & enabled via SAM tool.

Kindly suggest a solution. It would be of great help if you can share your knowledge for obtaining the status of the below hardware too.
1) Bus Adapters 2) USB Interface 3) USB root hub 4) RS-232 Interface

To see the status of your LAN, whether it is connected or not, you need to use lanscan and lanadmin.


First run lanadmin and see what lan cards you have.  Note the number under the "Crd In#" column.


Now use that number with the lanadmin command.


To check the speed and duplex setting you use 'lanadmin -x'.  For example:


# lanadmin -x 1
Speed = 1000 Full-Duplex.
Autonegotiation = On.


You can check other values by using 'lanadmin -g'.  For example:


# lanadmin -g 1
