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

 

I tried to use VMwares Article : https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1027206

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: 2.1.27.0
