Firmware versions different in Online ROM Flash and Options ROMPaq

I am supporting one of our customer's in a W2K deployment. The servers we are using are DL380's and DL580's. We're about to begin deployment but we wanted to ensure the servers have the most current firmware loaded. I was planning on using the Options ROMPaq for Array Controllers (v.3.10a, 11JUN02) instead of the Online ROM Flash Component for Windows Compaq Integrated Smart Array Controllers (v.1.50b, 13SEP02) but I noticed that the latter had more recent firmware versions (e.g. Smart Array 5300 is v.2.86 in the Online ROM Flash and v.2.32 in the Options ROMPaq). Is there a way that I can get the most current version of firmware that's available but in the Options ROMPaq?

Hi Kelly,

I have checked high & low on our in-house resources the on-line flash CP002775 for 5300 Controller is v2.88. But they haven't released this in Diskette Version yet. The Options ROM SP19677.EXE is at V2.32 as you have found.
