  • Publication number: 20190347091
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a mount unit, a memory, and a processor. The memory stores therein first identification information of a first interface device and first version number information of firmware installed in the first interface device. The processor compares the first identification information stored in the memory and second identification information of a second interface device mounted on the mount unit with each other. The processor compares, when the first identification information and the second identification information differ from each other, the first version number information stored in the memory and second version number information of firmware installed in the second interface device with each other.

  • Publication number: 20170366390
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes, in an aspect, a communication port, a reading unit, a determination unit, a collecting unit, and a sending unit. When a communication cable is connected to the communication port, the reading unit reads a failure condition table and a collection item table from a storage unit provided in a communication cable. The determination unit determines whether the state of communication via the communication cable connected to the communication port satisfies the condition in the failure condition table. When the determination unit determines that the state of the communication via the communication cable connected to the communication port satisfies the condition, the collecting unit collects the information corresponding to the item in the collection item table. The sending unit sends the information collected by the collecting unit to a predetermined device.
