solution enabler requires to be installed, if you want something quick and dirty ..take a look at inq. You can get it from here:

ftp://ftp.emc.com/pub/symm3000/inquiry/v6.5.2.0/

one of the options is "inq -hba" which will give you this output:

C:\Temp>inq.wnt_exe -hba
Inquiry utility, Version V7.3-623 (Rev 0.0)      (SIL Version V6.0.0.0 (Edit Lev
el 623)

For help type inq -h.

Is Solutions Enabler a free tool?


The software can be download from powerlink but the licenses for certain functions are not free. I installed SE on a host and did not add in any license files and I was able to run the following command.

C:\>syminq hba

So that will give you some basic information for free. The inq tool that dynamox referenced might be more useful if you don't need anything from SE expect to get HBA info.

i like how syminq shows driver/firmware version. Aran ..can you copy syminq.exe to another box that does not have SE installed. I am just curious if it will work as stand alone utility or it will require all those dll's. Unfortunately i don't have a test box right now.

Thanks

Loading dll's would not be fun (esp on my big IA box). If it was a straight exe, that would be cool. I use FCInfo all the time. I just load it to my home drive and if I connect to a server, I just run it to get wwn info.

It's good to know there are other tools out there. If it does not require an install + free, all the better...!

Nope you need the dll's. So yeah, fcinfo is simpler to use if you can't install software on the box.

you dont' really shut them down, create a backup of running config, make sure nothing is logged-in to the switch and flip the switched on the back of the unit. Same way to bring it back up.
