I noticed that on my Brocade FC switches I can gather information like:
HG620A_01:FID128:admin> nsshow | grep -i emulex | grep -i 1205
NodeSymb:  "Emulex HP-LPe1205A FV2.03X6 DV184.108.40.206 HN:neo3esx07 OS:VMware ESXi 6.0.0"
In this case it looks as if the FV indicates the adapter firmware version and the DV indicates the boot image firmware version. I
The Emulex HP-LPe1205A is running adapter firmware version 2.03X6 with boot firmware version 220.127.116.11 on the host named neo3esx07.
Is this interpretation correct?
I am working on verifying that all the systems are running the appropriate version of firmware. Can this reliably be used to determine which adapters need upgrades?
I imagine that this information is passed to the name server if the operating system driver supports that functionality.
Solved! Go to Solution.
