Easy Commands to Show BIOS and BMC Firmware Versions for All Hosts in the Nutanix Cluster

# Shows BMC/IPMI version for all hosts in cluster- Run from one CVM in cluster

for i in `hostips`; do echo AHV HOST $i ; ssh root@$i 'ipmitool bmc info |head |grep Firmware' 2>/dev/null ; done

# Shows BIOS version for all hosts in cluster – run from one CVM in cluster

for i in `hostips`; do echo AHV HOST $i ; ssh root@$i 'dmidecode | head | grep Version' 2>/dev/null ; done

  1. I needed to get the same information, but found this to be more direct:

    [root@server~] # sudo dmidecode -s baseboard-product-name
    X9DR3-F
    [root@server ~] # sudo dmidecode -s bios-version
    3.3

    1. Thanks Andres – my command above provides the output for *all* hosts in the cluster, not just one, thus why the command is a little more complex.
