QUICK TIP: Obtaining RAID Controller firmware and driver version on an ESXi host

First run this command to dump the instance names for all instances in the system:

/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -d

and now just execute the command (replace ‘lsi_mr3-544a842043a54a00/LSI Incorporation’ with the Key Value Instance you received as the output of previous command) :

/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval//vmkmgmt_keyval -l -i 'lsi_mr3-544a842043a54a00/LSI Incorporation'

That’s it 🙂 Any questions, comments? Just ping me.
