Hi,

you should find the information you're looking for by entering the following command.

less /proc/scsi/aic79xx/6

Hi,

this should be possible with the following commands.

esxcfg-scsidevs -a

This will provide a list with all SCSI Adapters found in the server.

To get more information about the SCSI card, record the name of the driver that SCSI card did use.

Based on this info, perform the following commands.

ls -al /proc/scsi/<driver_name>

less /proc/scsi/<driver_name>/x

This should provide additional information about the used SCSI card.

Regards,

Ralf
