VMware: How to check HBA firmware version without rebooting ESX host
I need to find out witch firmware version is running on my HBA without rebooting the ESX host.. I thought this was possible by GUI but couldn’t find it, so I decided to check this by console. Give the following commands:
– cd proc/scsi/qla or lpfc820
– ls –lia
To view the HBA information:
– cat 6
– cat 7
It wasn’t so difficult!
