EFI Shell

[ Edited ]

Booting server to get EFI Shell. To determine sasflash version and display information about about 1068 and 1068E cards on the system. Every command I type returns invalid parameter.

System is HP-UX 11.23 (rx2660)


At the Shell prompt:



Invalid parameter

shell>sasflash -listall

Invalid parameter

These commands are not built-in.

Use sasmgr from hp-ux, example:

$ sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0

Re: EFI Shell

Sasflash is a utility that comes with the sas fw download. So it is not native to the efi shell. You can download (on mobile no link) put on a usb to execute at the efi.

You will have to change to the partition of usb disk. Usually it is fs0:
