Replace bad CF in StorageWorks B-Series 4/32 FC switch??

I have a 4/32 with a bad CF, how do I load firmware on a new CF?  There is no firmwaredownload option in the PROM.

Could sched some insight on this. If you had made a copy of it before, then you could dd this back.

Did you get the CF from Brocade?

I suppose that there are more things on the CF than just the firmware.

Did you get an empty CF or a spare part from HP?

Unfortunately the switch is out of support so I didn't try that route.

Maybe it's possible to find as a spare part? So you wouldn't have to go through HP support for it.. It doesn't say on the old CF?

Anyway, who would take out the CF from a working SAN-switch and make a copy of it? Maybe it's something to do if it is used but not under support..

Good thought, I just checked PartSurfer but don't see a CF listed :(
