Obtaining Negotiated Speed of FC Links using Cisco Powertool

I can obtain the speed of the Network Uplinks on the Cisco FI-s using the command

Get-UcsFiLanCloud -Id "A" | Get-UcsUplinkPort -AdminState "enabled" | Foreach-Object { $_.adminspeed }

However, there is no option to obtain the negotiated speed of the Fiber Channel Uplinks from the Cisco FI-s. There is no AdminSpeed Property from the output of the below command

Get-UcsFiSanCloud -Id "A"| Get-UcsFcUplinkPort -AdminState "enabled"

Is it possible to get the negotiated speed of the FC Links? If so, kindly provide the powertool command.

Obtaining Negotiated Speed of FC Links using Cisco Powertool

You can take a different approach to getting them.  I specify the "network-element" cmdlet to get all of the FI's, specify the "Module" that I want to get information from (id 1 = the fixed ports, id 2 = the first expansion slot in the FI, id 3 = the second expansion slot in the FI if present), specify the port groups that are FC, get all of those ports, and then use a select statement to filter the data down.  As you can see below, my FC ports are negotiated at 4gpbs.

PS C:\ucs> Get-UcsNetworkElement | Get-UcsFiModule -Id 1 | Get-UcsPortGroup -Transport fc | Get-UcsFiFcPort | select dn, epdn, admintransport, adminstate, operspeed | Format-Table

Dn                                      EpDn                                    AdminTransport                          AdminState                              OperSpeed

If you weren't aware, there is a great command called get-ucscmdletmeta.  It will help in understanding how things are defined in the UCS XML model.

Here are some example usages:

Get-UcsCmdletMeta -noun ucsnetworkelement -Tree

(I've removed the output since it was very long, but it will give you all the hierarchy of all the sub classes that are children to network element, the XML class names for each, and the appropriate PowerShell verbs and nouns for querying and manipulating the classes.

Obtaining Negotiated Speed of FC Links using Cisco Powertool

Eric.. thanks for your reply.. I took a subset of your command

Get-UcsNetworkElement | Get-UcsFiModule -Id 1 | Get-UcsPortGroup -Transport fc | Get-UcsFiFcPort | select dn, epdn, admintransport, adminstate, operspeed | Format-Table

and used this to obtain the operational speed of my FC Links.

Get-UcsFiFcPort -Ucs $kvlogin -AdminState "enabled" -SwitchId "B" -PortId $FabBFCLink | Foreach-Object { $_.OperSpeed }

Great stuff .. thx.
