QLogic

To determine the firmware for a QLogic fibre adapter, run these commands on the ESXi/ESX host:

  1. Go to /proc/scsi/qla####.

    Where #### is the model of the Qlogic HBA
  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 number.

    Driver version 3.24
    Code starts at address = 0x82a314
    Firmware version 2.00.00.45

 

Emulex

To determine the firmware for a Emulex HBA on an ESXi/ESX host:
