    In the “Internet & Networking” category, select “I/O Cards and Networking Software”. Select “Fibre Channel”. HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage is a high-speed connection for mass storage. It transmits data faster than existing SCSI mass storage interconnects. HP Fibre Channel Mass Storage networks are ideal for data-intensive applications, including data mining, atmospheric modeling, multimedia, geographic information systems, and medical imaging.

    All HP Fibre Channel adapters support the HP Offline Diagnostics Environment (ODE). ODE is an offline support tools platform for troubleshooting HP/9000 and HP Integrity systems running without an operating system, or systems that cannot be tested using online tools. The offline environment is also useful for testing before a system is booted.

It is important to make sure that the EFI filesystem is not attached to the adapter you are about to update. It is often helpful to write down the EFI directory and filename of the firmware file, because you will be required to enter the directory and filename as part of the update.
