how to know switch type from cmd line

  • 1.  how to know switch type from cmd line

    Posted 07-17-2014 01:38 AM

    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,

    Felipon
