Upgrade Virtual connect on blade?!


We are having a NIC problem on our BL490s, and Citrix is telling us to upgrade the Virtual Connect firmware on our BLADES to 2.1 or newer.
I thought Virtual connect firmware only existed in the SWITCH? We have upgraded that to 2.30.
I cannot find anything on the BL490 driver page to suggest that there is anything related to virtual connect in the blade itself?

Does anyone know?
Thanks in advance!

As you say, there's the VC itself.
And then you have got the NIC's on the servers.

I believe there's new FW for the NIC's, that isn't on the 8.6 FW CD or the latest blade upgrade tool.
