Workaround for "undetected" for OCl11104-F2-X and Emulex FC adapter

Symptom

Sometimes UXSPI v9.40 will display installed firmware version as "undetected" for OCl11104-F2-X and Emulex FC adapter

Details
Sometimes, on UXSPI UI the installed firmware version of the Emulex adapters will be shown as "undetected" and UXSPI doesn't automatically select the firmware package.

Customer can explicitly select the update package by making a manual selection on UXSPI GUI or by using command line option "--select" provided by UXSPI CLI. Either way, UXSPI will successfully apply the update to Emulex adapters.


To check the firmware version for the Emulex adapter, there are following options:

  1. Run portable DSA to check the version
  2. Check in UEFI interface (press F1 during system bootup stage)
  3. Run Emulex utility "hbacmd" on host OS to get firmware version.
    # hbacmd listhbas
    # hbacmd hbaAttrib <MAC/WWN>
