Upgrading Firmware on FC2243 (rx3600)

I am trying to upgrade the firmware on my FC2243, fiber-channel cards. I downloaded the .zip from HP and unpacked it, this gave me
fw_fc2243_bf210a10.all

The firmware has no installation instructions or readme file, and this file seems to be a binary file.

Can anyone tell me how to proceed, or how I deal with this file.

Dave.

FC2243 is actually an Emulex LP11002 HBA. You have various options to upgrade the firmware depending upon the operating environment you have. Unfortunatly, the upgrade procedure is not available at HP BSC. However you can refer Emulex Firmware update manual for the procedure.

Thanks for your reply, this certainly helped, however information I received from a different direction indicates that these hba's might not be supported on OpenVMS IA64. I am checking into that.

In any case, the link to the update manual is much appreciated.

Windows Smart Setup CD includes all Emulex firmware files and their release notes. See the text 11002.txt.

All,
Thanks for your responses. I now have the correct HBA's, which fortunately do not need any firmware updates.

Thank you all for your help
