Contributors netapp-driley

The show controller NVSRAM command returns information about NVSRAM byte values.

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.


This command returns a list of the NVSRAM byte values for the specified host type. If you do not enter the optional parameters, this command returns a list of all of the NVSRAM byte values.


show (allControllers | controller [(a|b)])
NVSRAM [hostType=hostTypeIndexLabel | host="hostName"]


Parameter Description


The setting to return information about both controllers in the storage array.


The setting to return information about a specific controller in the storage array. Valid controller identifiers are a or b, where a is the controller in slot A, and b is the controller in slot B. Enclose the controller identifier in square brackets ([ ]).


The index label or number of the host type. Use the show storageArray hostTypeTable command to generate a list of available host type identifiers.


The name of the host that is connected to the controllers. Enclose the host name in double quotation marks (" ").


Use the show controller NVSRAM command to show parts of or all of the NVSRAM before using the set controller command to change the NVSRAM values. Before making any changes to the NVSRAM, contact technical support to learn what regions of the NVSRAM you can modify.
