Firmware of HBA on ESX Servers

Jump to solution

We use ESX V3.0.2 and run them on Dell Blade servers. They have HBA fibre cards installed which we connect to the SAN to.

I need to know the firmware version of the HBA's. Is there a command on the console of the ESX server to find this.

Hi,

Take a loot in the /proc/scsi/your_ha_driver/port_number

For me, a :

cat /proc/scsi/qla2300/1

gave me :

QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for HPAE312A:

Firmware version: 4.00.29, Driver version 7.08-vm33.1

Boot Code Version:

BIOS : v1.26, Fcode : v1.17, EFI : v1.09

you can check that in the below location.

/proc/scsi/lpfc

cat the file.
