do the latest firmware CDs update HBA cards?

I am looking to update a number of BL460c blades using firmware CD with the 9.3 release set. If I boot the firmware CD using the ILO, I know it will update the firmwares on the blade. Will it also update the firmwares on the HBA cards? 


Models of blades and HBA cards are


Many BL460C G6 with HP BLc Emulex LPe1205 8Gb FC HBA (using VMware ESX 4.1)

A single BL460C G1 with HP BLc QLogic QMH2462 4Gb FC HBA(using windows 2003)

Re: do the latest firmware CDs update HBA cards?

We ran an upgrade on one server and that one has newer QMH2462 firmware than all the other blades. I'd say yes it can update HBA cards.
