Qlogic 2312 Controller Firmware

Hi all,

Trying to update all the drivers and firmwares on our blade setup and have had a problem where I installed new drivers on 2 of our bl20p G3 blades and the system wouldn't boot. After rolling back the drivers with 'last known good' I notice that the firmware on 2 of the blade's Qlogic HBA boards are older than the others. The BIOS on all are the same at v1.48 but the firmware is 3.02.28 vs 3.03.21 on the 2 machines that failed the driver upgrade.

So all in all, anyone any ideas where I can find the firmware for these boards?

Cheers,
Steve

G'day Steve,

I think what you are looking for is here:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=co-47004-1&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=1120361

This is for the HP QLogic-based dual port Fibre Channel Adapter (P/N 361426-B21), which is compatible with the HP ProLiant BL20p G3, BL20p G4, BL25p G2, and BL45p G2 server blades, but not the HP ProLiant BL25p G1, BL35p, or BL45p G1 server blades.

Hope this helps.

Oops, my bad. That link is for the FC card HP p/n 381881-B21 which is the HP Proliant BL25/45p dual-port Fibre Channel Adapter.

This card (P/N 381881-B21) is only is compatible with the HP ProLiant BL25p and BL45p server blades. It cannot be used with HP ProLiant BL20p or HP Proliant BL35p server blade.

Sorry for the bum steer.

I can only find BIOS version 1.45 for the card that you are looking for, part number 361426-B21 as follows:

Apologies for the mistake on my part.
