  • x is the management-module bay number, blade server bay number, I/O-module bay number, microprocessor number, power module bay number, or daughter-card number.
  • y is the:
    • blade server I/O expansion card number (dtr).
    • microprocessor number (CPU).
Reload component information for firmware

Reloads vital product data (VPD) for firmware.

info -reload fw
                           -T system
Reload component information for hardware

Reloads vital product data (VPD) for hardware.

info -reload hw
                           -T system
Reload information on MAC addresses

Reloads vital product data (VPD) for MAC addresses.

info -reload mac
                           -T system
Reload WWN and GUID information

Reloads vital product data (VPD) for world-wide name (WWN) and globally-unique identifier (GUID).

info -reload wwn
                           -T system
Reload all component information

Forces reload of all VPD and MAC address information.

info -reload all
                           -T system
  1. The command targets -T system:blade[x]:cpu[y] and -T system:blade[x]:dtr[y] are shown with a line break before the :cpu[y] or :dtr[y]. When these command targets are entered, the entire entry must all be on one line.
  2. This command returns vital product data (VPD) information that is unique for each command target.
  3. Even if the command target is specified, the -reload option acts globally, reloading information not just for the specified target but for all targets in the corresponding category; for example, all MAC addresses are reloaded for all targets when the command is info -reload mac with system:blade[x] as the target.
Example: To view the information about a management module in management-module bay 1, while this management module is set as the persistent command environment, at the system:mm[1]> prompt, type

The following example shows the information that might be returned from the info command:

               system:mm[1]> info
