What is a PCI ID and how can you obtain it?


It is the Vendor ID and Device ID registers to identify the device, and are commonly called the PCI ID. There are some situations when a PCI ID of the installed hardware is needed to check if the DSS V7 or Jovian DSS built-in drivers support the hardware. In order to check the PCI ID perform one of the following steps listed below:

  1. When already using a DSS V7 or Jovian DSS:

    Go to DSS webgui -> Status -> Hardware -> Logs and download the logs.
    Decompress the downloaded file and open the “test.log”. Find the “lspci -nn“ section. Now find the line referring to the hardware that you need to know if it’s supported by the build-in drivers. Alternatively, you can just provide us with log files.

  1. Linux:

    Enter the following command in the console:

    lspci -nn

    You will see a list of hardware installed in your system. Here is an example:
    00:18.3 Host bridge [0600]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 10h Processor Miscellaneous Control [1022:1203]
    00:18.4 Host bridge [0600]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 10h Processor Link Control [1022:1204]
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] [10de:0a65] (rev a2)
    01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be3] (rev a1)
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 01)   

    Please send us the line that refers to your hardware that you want to know if it’s supported.

  2. Using Windows or ESX:

    For more details about how to check the PCI ID when you are running windows or ESX, please visit the following webpage:

  3. Hardware vendor:

    You can contact your, hardware vendor directly and request such code

NOTE: The code usually looks like this - 10c7:1200q
