Quick question. How can you determine exactly what Enginuity pack level a
VMAX array is at? For example, I'd like to know if our VMAX 40k is at
I think you may be looking for the 'Enginuity Build Version' field from the output of 'symcfg -sid <serial> list -v'...
For example --
symcfg -sid <xx> list -v |grep "Build Version"
Enginuity Build Version : 5876.229.145
Unfortunately, that doesn't give me exactly what I am looking for. Let me
give you the exact situation. We are looking at a proactive Enginuity pack
upgrade. The pack came out on February 10, 2014 for 5876.251.161. All
of our arrays are already at 5876.251.161, but, as part of a drive upgrade
EMC CCA is stating that we need to be at this new Enginuity pack. However,
we have four other VMAX arrays, and I want to confirm that those arrays
will need the pack as well (some of those arrays have been upgraded in the
last two months).
According to the release notes for the pack, the packs identifiers are as
Enginuity reg. build = 5876_251/0067
SymmWin reg. build = 5876_151/5004
Fix numbers = 70035, 68095, 68694, 68720, 67316
Engineering ID = 4717
So, how can I tell if I'm at this exact pack?
Unfortunately you can't see applied fix/pack info from SYMCLI/Unisphere... but we can get someone to dial in and check from Inlines. I'll drop you an email...
Okay, so that gives a list of the patches. Cross reference that with the list of
the patches provided in the release notes and I can determine which Enginuity
pack is installed. Not completely clean, but it works. Thanks!!
