Re: How to upgrade HBA driver

Hi


download the driver from the site as per the OS that u possess that is 11.23.

ftp that to the server where u want to upgrade the FC driver in some directory say /tmp using the binary mode of tranfser.

this shall be a .depot file

on the server do the following.

#swlist -d @ /tmp/<*.depot>


#swinstall -s /tmp/<*.depot>


u will be prompted to install the driver using a swinstall screen. Install the driver and the system shall reboot after that.


use fcmsutil to again verify the driver version

Shalom,

These drivers generally ship on the Core OS or Application CD/DVD.

Normal upgrade path is swinstall and it will update.
