is my qlogic driver in-box or out-of-box?

We have a Proliant DL580 G5 with a pair of Qlogic FC1142SR HBAs in it. As part of a SAN upgrade and checking firmware and driver levels on SPOCK for compatability, I noticed our driver level is under the supported level for the OOB driver. I checked these levels through the SANsurfer app.


However, in SPOCK for the "In Box" level, it simply states "In Box" is supported, no driver version/level listed.


So I'm wondering, how do I know if the current FC driver is IB or OOB?


And if it is OOB, and I indeed need to upgrade it, is it as simple (as the doc says) as running the install script for the linux FC driver kit, and rebooting the server?
