v11.23 - Upgrading an HBA driver

I have several HPUX 11.23 hosts where I need to upgrade the driver version on my HBAs.

My support supplied me the Sep 10 driver code that I was able to download onto one host.(as a depot)

The driver version applied to my HBAs is Sep 05 and Im upgrading to Sep 2010.

I ran swinstall and it recognized the software (and it also shows the patch requirements which are already installed).

Once I install ( swinstall)  the proper FC version for my  model of HBA i have, what if any other steps, do  i need to perform to actually apply this version to the HBA...?

Re: v11.23 - Upgrading an HBA driver

The appropriate driver should be installed onto the card the next time the server reboots.  

 

However, depending on the server type PA-RISC vs. Itanium, and the driver, you may need to update some firmware on the fibre card from the EFI an Itanium server.

 

What model fibre card do you have and what  model server?
