Gather HBA Information on AIX Virtualization

From one of my logical partitions (lpar) I can see one of my Fibre Channel SCSI I/O Controller Protocol Device in defined state.

Now I can match the “Hardware Location Code” (U9117.MMB.1068B0P-V20-C348-T1) with the Virtual Fibre Channel Host on the VIO.

From VIO as padmin:

Now I have vfchost73 and the VFC client name: fcs15. Lets get more info:

As root on VIO, let’s get a little more info.
