Hi,

Please find below the instruction how you can identify Gen types for the RPA on the basis of HBA Model-

RPA

-------

GEN type                                   HBA Model

---------------                                  -------------------

Gen 1                                          QLA2342

Gen 2                                          QLE2462

You can follow below steps to find out HBA type-

Hi,

If your using the GUI then its very easy to determine which Gen hardware your using .

You just need to click on the RPA and then double click the RPA which you want to see and the property window for that hardware will pop up which has more details for hardware and system graphs. In that if you notice on top left end there are following details like :-

1) Site

2) ID

3) WAN IP

4) Mmgmt IP

5) Version

6) hardware platform

For example ==> Dell Inc PowerEdge R610 GEN4

This identifies that which gen hardware is it from GUI .

Login as admin using SSH then use 'get_box_status' command.

On this CLI, you can get detail information of RPA box.

Hi ,

There is no comand as mentioned  'get_box_status' in 3.5.p1 . But yes there is CLI cmand "get_box_states" which gives same details which you get in GUI for the RPA's. I hope all this post has given your answer.
