How to find out the HBA Card installed ?

Jump to solution

We have set up ESX 3.0.1 Host with DELL PE6850 Server. According to the specification, the HBA should be a QLE2460. However, from VI Client, it says that it is a QLA2432. From OpenManage, it says that it is a "QLogic Fabric Channel Bus Controller".

Since we are going to migrate to a 4G SAN, is there any way for us to find out the HBA we have (without opening the box) ?

Thanks

You could look at the procnode

eg.

root@your_esx_server:~$ cat /proc/scsi/qla2300/0

Dear Todd,

Many thanks for your advice. I find that it is a QLE2460.

In order to find out the info of another HBA, should I use cat/proc/scsi/qla2300/1 ?

Thanks

That's correct. 0 would be the first HBA 1 and would be the second.
