Checking firmware version of NIC driver on ESXi 6.0

To check for a problem firmware version on HP blades, I used the following snippet.  It leverages a small hashtable as a parameter to get-esxcli newish “V2” format for calling esxcli commands remotely.

Thought it was kind of fun.

  1. This is more like a question than a comment.
    I noticed both from the ESXi and booting using a live CD that the NICs report back a firmware version of firmware-version: 0x00000000. What might be causing this?
