Storage Area Network (SAN) HBA Info

Top  Previous  Next

Use the -fchbainfo command to report information specific to the make, model, and drivers for your fibre channel HBA(s).  Unlike the -fc command, this does not search for devices attached to the HBAs. It just reports information specific to the HBAs installed in your system.

If you have an HBA that does not appear, then check to see that the vendor's SNIA API Library is properly installed and configured on your system. Remember, there is an HBAAPI runtime, which is common to all HBAs, and there are vendor/HBA-unique library files that have to be installed and referenced in the /etc/hba.conf file or your Windows registry.
SMARTMonUX and the SNIA HBA API both report mixing and matching HBA vendors, models, and firmware.  That does not mean that your HBA vendors support "foreign" HBA vendor cards and/or drivers.
