How to find Dell PERC FD332 or H330 Firmware Versions in ESXi 6

Posted on Updated on

Today’s adventure seemed an easy task but ended up taking much too long to find the right answer.

The task… ‘Is there a way to find the firmware version of a Dell Perc FD332 or H330 controller using command line in ESXi 6?’

The answer:

‘zcat /var/log/boot.gz |grep -i firm’

Things that didn’t work –

Thanks going out to my fellow VMware TAMs for helping me to locate this answer.

If you like my ‘no-nonsense’ blog articles that get straight to the point… then let me know…

Else, I’ll start writing boring blog content.

    Brilliant. Works for Perc H310 too:
    2018-11-12T23:52:28.185Z cpu9:66246)megasas: controller 0x4304d31f15b0 has firmware version 20.13.0-0007.

    BTW, here’s a second way if you had sfcbd (wbem services) running *and* the LSI CIM Vib installed:
    $ enum_instances LSIESG_FirmwarePackageIdentity lsi/lsimr13 | grep VersionString
    VersionString = 20.13.0-0007
