Smart Array P400 card replacement on rx2660

Hi Experts,
I have to replace one faulty RAID controller card, Smart Array P400 card (SP# 504022-001)on a rx2660 integrity server slot-4. There are 2 Logical volumes configured on this card and having data. I know that the new RAID card should have the same or latest firmware. But I am not able to check the exisiting firmware on the defective card. System continously rebooting while connecting this card.
I want to make sure I will not loss any data. The new controller card will get the exisiting Logical Drive informatons from the disks.
What I have to do in this case. Please advise...

Thanks in advance...

Hi,
While this firmware upgrade on the new Controller card, I dont have to connect the SAS cables on the controller, Is it?

Can you please confirm the below link will be the right firmware for the same.

Can the server boot up to EFI with the mal-functioning card installed? If it can, you can know it's firmware.

The controller firmware upgrade can be done without connecting the SAS cable.
