Gather firmware info directly from MSA20 enclosure?

Hey all new guy here.

My questions are can I attach the console cable directly to the back of the MSA20 and using Putty or Hyperterminal  determine the firmware level? Or do you have to go through the controller?

This is the serial output during boot, I guess you can get a similar information even during runtime:

HP Array Controller Firmware
FW=2.10, Bld=0xA602, BB=0.30, SMGR=2.12, SMGR(T)=1.14, SATA_MNGR=8.2 CPLD=9

...


Hope this helps!

So are you saying I can attach a laptop and get  a terminal session going directly to the enclosure?
