how to know switch type from cmd line

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have several FC switches and when I run switchshow on Brocade 5300 I get:

switchName:     my_switch_describe_name
switchType:     64.3
switchState:    Online
switchMode:     Native
switchRole:     Principal
switchDomain:   1

How can I get info that this is Brocade 5300? And how can I get which firmware version is?

 

Regards

Hi,

 

That info is available in the following link:

 

http://community.brocade.com/dtscp75322/attachments/dtscp75322/UserContributed/21/1/switch-types-blads-ids-product-names.pdf

 

it its a brocade tech doc.

 

When it comes to the firmware version, you need to execute the command 'firmwareshow'.

 

Kind regads,
