Finding VID, DID & SVID from PCI devices in ESXi

Jump to solution

I am trying to get the vendor id and device id for nic and hba adapters but why I am seeing different values when compared with $esxcli.hardware.pci.list() and esxcfg-info

Here is the script I used

foreach ($esx in Get-VMHost 'sez00wtr-0625.sweng.ncr.com'| ? { $_.ConnectionState -eq 'Connected' }) {

    $esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost $esx

    $nic = Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $esx | select -ExpandProperty Name

    $hba = Get-VMHostHba -VMHost $esx -Type FibreChannel | ? { $_.Status -eq "online" } | select -ExpandProperty Name

    $elxnet = $esxcli.software.vib.list() | ? { $_.name -eq "elxnet" }

    $esxcli.hardware.pci.list() | ? { ($nic -contains $_.VMKernelName) -or ($hba -contains $_.VMKernelName) } | ForEach-Object -Process {

        New-Object PSObject -Property (

            [ordered]@{

                Name         = $esx.Name

                Device       = $_.DeviceName

                VendorName   = $_.VendorName

                VendorID     = ( $_.VendorID)

                DeviceID     = ($_.DeviceID)

                SubVendorID  = ($_.SubVendorID)

                nicFWversion = ($esxcli.network.nic.get("vmnic0").driverinfo.version)

                stFWversion  = ($elxnet.version.substring(0, 14))


            })

    }


}

The issue is that the output fields from Get-EsxCli in this case are of type [string].
And formatting a string to hex doesn't do anything.

You first have to convert the string to int.

New-Object PSObject -Property (

    [ordered]@{

        Name         = $esx.Name

        Device       = $_.DeviceName

        VendorName   = $_.VendorName

        VendorID     = "0x{0:x}" -f [int]$_.VendorID

        DeviceID     = "0x{0:x}" -f [int]$_.DeviceID

        SubVendorID  = "0x{0:x}" -f [int]$_.SubVendorID

        nicFWversion = ($esxcli.network.nic.get("vmnic0").driverinfo.version)

        stFWversion  = ($elxnet.version.substring(0, 14))

    })

The values are the same, one is displayed in decimal, the other in hex.

To display in hex format you can use the format operator

"0x{0:x}" -f ( $_.VendorID)

I have tried like this but its still showing incorrect value

Actual ids displayed for QLogic 10GbE 2P QMD8262-k NDC in shell are as below

Vendor Id.......................................0x1077

               |----Device Id.......................................0x8020

               |----Sub-Vendor Id...................................0x1028

               |----Sub-Device Id...................................0x1f64

Even I am unable to find vid 0x4215 in vmware Compatibility Guide

pastedImage_1.png

I can able to find 0x1077 which is shown in shell prompt.

Those values are not corretc in your output.
The decimal value 4215 is hex 1077.

Yeah make sense. Is there any way if i can display the values in Hexadecimal format.

I added firmware variable and when I run the script 

New-Object PSObject -Property (
[ordered]@{

HostName = $esx.Name

Device = $_.DeviceName

VendorName = $_.VendorName

VendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.VendorID

DeviceID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.DeviceID

SubVendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.SubVendorID

nicFWversion = ($esxcli.network.nic.get("vmnic0").driverinfo.version)

stFWversion = ($elxnet.version.substring(0, 14))

driver = $NetworDriver.Version

firmware = $NetworkFirmware

devicename = $NetworkName

I get this output 

esx.JPG

How can I get SDID? And why do I get "vmnic5" as device name for all devices?

Device names should be vmnic0,vmnic1, vmnic2, vmnic3, vmnic4, vmnic5, vmhba0, vmhba1

You use the variable $NetworkName, which I suspect contains 'vmnic5'.
Since you didn't post your complete script, I can't see why you would use that variable.

The object also contains a propertySubDeviceId, which is the SDID

This is the whole script

foreach ($esx in Get-VMHost | ? { $_.ConnectionState -eq 'Connected' }) {
$esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost $esx

$nic = Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter -VMHost $esx | select -ExpandProperty Name

$hba = Get-VMHostHba -VMHost $esx -Type FibreChannel | ? { $_.Status -eq "online" } | select -ExpandProperty Name

$elxnet = $esxcli.software.vib.list() | ? { $_.name -eq "elxnet" }

$esxcli.hardware.pci.list() | ? { ($nic -contains $_.VMKernelName) -or ($hba -contains $_.VMKernelName) } | ForEach-Object -Process {

New-Object PSObject -Property (
[ordered]@{

HostName = $esx.Name

Device = $_.DeviceName

VendorName = $_.VendorName

VendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.VendorID

DeviceID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.DeviceID

SubVendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.SubVendorID

nicFWversion = ($esxcli.network.nic.get("vmnic0").driverinfo.version)

stFWversion = ($elxnet.version.substring(0, 14))

driver = $NetworDriver.Version

firmware = $NetworkFirmware

devicename = $NetworkName

})

 

}| Export-Csv -Path 'C:\ESXI HBA & NIC info.csv'


}

 

I used $NetworkName from here https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-PowerCLI-Discussions/Get-HBA-firmware-and-driver-version-fo... 

 

I have only this variables

VendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.VendorID

DeviceID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.DeviceID

SubVendorID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.SubVendorID

but don't have SubDeviceID in script. I've tried to add it in this form "SubDeviceID = "{0:x}" -f [int]$_.SubDeviceID" but didn't work.

Try this way.

 

$vmhosts = Get-VMHost
$report = @()
foreach ($ESXHost in $vmhosts) {
    $esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost $ESXHost -V2
    $nicfirmware = $esxcli.network.nic.list.Invoke()
    $fcfirmware = $esxcli.storage.san.fc.list.Invoke()
    $driversoft = $esxcli.software.vib.list.Invoke()

    foreach ($nicfirmwareselect in $nicfirmware) {
        $NetworDescription = $nicfirmwareselect.Description
        $NetworDriver = $driversoft | where { $_.name -eq ($nicfirmwareselect.Driver) }
        $NetworkName = $nicfirmwareselect.Name
        $NetworkFirmware = $esxcli.network.nic.get.Invoke(@{nicname=$nicfirmwareselect.Name}).DriverInfo.FirmwareVersion
        $ids = $esxcli.hardware.pci.list.Invoke() | where{$_.VMKernelName -eq $NetworkName}
        $report += "" |
            select @{N = "Hostname"; E = { $ESXHost.Name } },

    }
    foreach ($fcfirmwareselect in $fcfirmware) {

PS: next time don't piggy-back on existing threads with new requirements, but rather create a new thread.
That allows other users to more easily find such questions.

That's it, that's what I need, thank you!

Just one more thing, do you know why it won't list VID,DID,SVID & SDID for hba's?

Sorry for piggy-backing on existing threads, I thought it would be better to reply to the similar thread then opening a new one.

Won't happen again 🙂

I suspect my type ($fckName instead $fcName) caused that.
I updated the code above.

No problem, you can always include a link to the original post for which you have an additional requirement

Hi @LucD 

Looking to update the script to pull the hba/firmware details on a vSAN environment and when I update the string '$esxcli.storage.san.sas.list.Invoke()' to use sas it still doesn't pull any information on the hosts. Is there an additional switch I'm missing here?

$vmhosts = Get-VMHost 
$report = @()
foreach ($ESXHost in $vmhosts) {
$esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost $ESXHost -V2
$nicfirmware = $esxcli.network.nic.list.Invoke()
$fcfirmware = $esxcli.storage.san.sas.list.Invoke()
$driversoft = $esxcli.software.vib.list.Invoke()

Thanks in advance

Have a look in Jase's POWERCLI COOKBOOK FOR VMWARE VSAN?

Hi LucD - nothing in the cookbook relating to hba firmware or any firmware specific commands on a vSAN environment.

Running 'esxcli storage san sas list' gets the relevant details for the f/w and driver version so just looking to pull this via a script then.

Hi @LucD 

I'm using the following script to get the HBA details now however it fails to pull the firmware version on 'lsi_msgpt3' driver types. Is this a switch I'm missing to collect this information?

$vcenter = "vctest"

Connect-VIServer $vcenter
$vmhosts = Get-VMHost | Where {$_.Connectionstate -eq "Connected"}
$reportHba = @()

foreach ($vmhost in $vmhosts){

$esxcli = Get-EsxCli -VMHost $vmhost -V2
$reportHba += $esxcli.Storage.san.sas.list.Invoke()|

select @{N = 'HostName'; E = {$esxcli.VMHost.Name}},

DeviceName, DriverName, DriverVersion, FirmwareVersion
}

$reportHba | Export-Csv -Path 'S:\Scripts\Hbainfo.csv' -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture

Sample output included below where you can see the driver version pulled successfully for llsi_mr3 but no info. displayed for :lsi_msgpt3

HostName : server1
DeviceName : vmhba0
DriverName : lsi_msgpt3
DriverVersion : 16.00.01.00
FirmwareVersion :

HostName : server2
DeviceName : vmhba0
DriverName : lsi_mr3
DriverVersion : 7.708.07.00
FirmwareVersion : 25.5.7.0005

 

Any advice would be appreciated.
