Update HBA Firmware to Support UEFI BIOS

You might need to update the firmware on your Sun Storage 6 Gb SAS PCIe HBA Internal (SGX-SAS6-INT-Z), Sun Storage 6 Gb SAS PCIe HBA External (SGX-SAS6-EXT-Z), or Sun Storage 6 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA Internal (SGX-SAS6-R-INT-Z) card to support the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) BIOS if you are not using a card that was shipped with your system. You might need to update your HBA firmware if:

  • You receive a replacement card for a faulty HBA.

  • You order an HBA separately from your system.

  • You want to use an HBA that you already own.

You can use Oracle System Assistant or Oracle Hardware Management Pack to update your HBA firmware. For information on updating HBA firmware using Oracle System Assistant, see “Update Firmware” in the Sun Server X3-2 Administration Guide. For information on updating HBA firmware using Oracle Hardware Management Pack, see “Set Up Software and Firmware Using Oracle Hardware Management Pack” in the Sun Server X3-2 Administration Guide.


Note - Alternatively, you can configure your system to use Legacy BIOS. For information, see “Selecting Legacy BIOS or UEFI Boot Mode” in the Sun Server X3-2 Administration Guide.
