How to Find Driver version of HBA / Firmware / BIOS in Vmware


I tried to use VMwares Article :

However this command was giving me nothing : vmkload_mod -s HBADriver |grep Version

I had to use the command:

/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -d

I can see the names of the NIC, here: vmhba3 and vmhba4

With the command: 

/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -l -i vmhba4/qlogic

I can see this information:

  • Name: QMH2562
  • Firmware 8.01.02
  • Flash firmware level: 7.03.00
  • Bios: 3.24
  • Driver version:
