Hey Storage Spaces Direct fans, I know we have had a lot of chatter going on regarding Mellanox’s recent bad firmware release. As I banged my head up against the wall I discovered that Mellanox actually provides some really nice PowerShell Cmdlets with their WinOF drivers.

When looking into them I figured why not build out a nice little reporting script that would grab the Mellanox NIC Configs from my Storage Spaces Direct Environment.

This will help me discover driver, firmware, and settings drift quite easily.


As we can see we have some Firmware Drift in my farm… better get this fixed up ASAP


Before looking at the few lines of code to build this report let’s have a look at the different cmdlets available from Mellanox:

#Powershell SET commands Sets
 
Set-MlnxDriverCoreSetting
Set-MlnxPCIDevicePortTypeSetting
Set-MlnxPCIDeviceSriovSetting
 
 
#Powershell GET commands Sets
 
Get-MlnxDriver
Get-MlnxFirmware
Get-MlnxIBPort
Get-MlnxNetAdapter
Get-MlnxPCIDevice
Get-MlnxSoftware
 
#Get-MlnxDriver Command Set
 
Get-MlnxDriverCapabilities
Get-MlnxDriverCoreCapabilities
Get-MlnxDriverCoreSetting
Get-MlnxDriverService
Get-MlnxDriverSetting


Get-MlnxDriverCapabilities |FL
Get-MlnxDriverCoreCapabilities |FL
Get-MlnxDriverCoreSetting | FL
Get-MlnxFirmwareIdentity | FL
Get-MlnxIBPort
Get-MlnxIBPortCounters | FL
Get-MlnxNetAdapter | FL
Get-MlnxNetAdapterEcnSetting | FL
Get-MlnxNetAdapterFlowControlSetting | FL
Get-MlnxNetAdapterRoceSetting | FL
Get-MlnxNetAdapterSetting |FL
Get-MLNXPCIDevice | fl
Get-MLNXPCIDeviceCapabilities | fl
Get-MlnxPCIDevicePortTypeSetting |fl
Get-MlnxPCIDeviceSetting | fl
Get-MlnxSoftwareIdentity

Ok now let’s have a look at the code for my script. It builds a nice little HTML report for you just like the one you see above.
