Update HBA Firmware to Support UEFI BIOS

If you are using a host bus adapter (HBA) card that was not shipped with your system, you might need to update the firmware on your HBA card to support the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) BIOS. The following HBA cards might need updating:

  • Sun Storage Dual 16 Gb Fibre Channel PCIe Universal HBA, QLogic (7101674)

  • Sun Storage Dual 16 Gb Fibre Channel PCIe Universal HBA, Emulex (7101684)

Therefore, you might need to update your HBA firmware if any of the following statements are true:

  • You receive a replacement card for a faulty HBA card.

  • You order an HBA card separately from your system.

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

You can use Oracle Hardware Management Pack to update your HBA firmware. For information on updating HBA firmware using Oracle Hardware Management Pack, see instructions for updating firmware in the Oracle X6 Series Servers Administration Guide at https://www.oracle.com/goto/x86admindiag/docs.
