Identifying the firmware of a Qlogic or Emulex FC HBA

QLogic

To determine the firmware for a QLogic fibre adapter:
  1. Go to /proc/ scsi/qla2300 .
  2. Run the ls command to see all of the adapters in the directory.

    The output appears similar to:1 2 HbaApiNode

  3. Run the command:head -2 <#> , where <#> is the HBA numberThe output appears similar to:

    QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for QLA2340 :
    Firmware version: 3.03.19, Driver version 7.07.04.2vmw

To determine the firmware for a QLogic iSCSI hardware initiator:
  1. Go to /proc/ scsi/qla4022.
  2. Run the ls command to see all of the adapters in the directory.

    The output appears similar to:1 2 HbaApiNode

  3. Run the command:head -4 <#>, where <#> is the HBA numberThe output appears similar to:

    QLogic iSCSI Adapter for ISP 4022:
    Driver version 3.24
    Code starts at address = 0x82a314
    Firmware version 2.00.00.45

Emulex

To determine the firmware for a Emulex HBA:
  1. Go to /proc/s csi/lpfc.
  2. Run the ls command to see all of the adapters in the directory.

    The output appears similar to:1 2

  3. Run the command:head -4 <#> , where <#> is the HBA numberThe output appears similar to:

    Emulex LightPulse FC SCSI 7.3.2_vmw2
    Emulex LP10000DC 2Gb 2-port PCI-X Fibre Channel Adapter on PCI bus 42 device 08 irq 42
    SerialNum: BG51909398
    Firmware Version: 1.91A5 (T2D1.91A5)

Note: You can determine the firmware of HBAs only using Direct Console access or SSH and not via RCLI or vMA.
