Save storage array firmware inventory

Contributors netapp-driley

The save storageArray firmwareInventory command saves a report to a file of all of the firmware currently running on the storage array.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.


The report lists the firmware for these components:

  • Controllers

  • Drives

  • Drawers (if applicable)

  • Environmental services modules (ESMs)

  • Power supplies

You can use the information to help identify out-of-date firmware or firmware that does not match the other firmware in your storage array. You can also send the report to technical support for further review.

The default name of the file that contains the firmware inventory is firmware-inventory.txt. This command does not automatically append a file extension to the saved file. You must specify a file extension when entering the file name.
