How to determine HBA firmware level on netware

Howdy.

I have a bunch of netware machines with FC hba's. I'm not a netware person.

How can I determine what level firmware they have, and how can I upgrade them if needed?

TIA and points for all responses.

Re: How to determine HBA firmware level on netware

I am a newbie at Fibre Channel stuff so don't know if there is an NLM you can run to get this info.
Some generally useful stuff would be console commands like:
DISPLAY STORAGE ADAPTERS
NWCONFIG
CONFIG
MONITOR

You may just have to reboot the server and enter the FC card BIOS during the POST/boot phase.

Couple of things I forgot.

DL380 servers.
HP/Compaq FC cards.

I can't reboot the machines, they are production boxes, and our netware guy says he knows of no way to get the firmware rev of the cards.

I tried a search of the Novell knowledgebase
http://support.novell.com/search/kb_index.jsp
but didn't come up with anything much. (Only white papers on clustering)

More likely that a search of the Compaq-HP knowledgebase should find something Proliant-specific.
