I want to upgrade my bios version as per 3par documentation provided on SPOCK.
As per SPOCK i have LPe1105 4gb so i need to have BIOS 3.11a5 and fw version 2.82xa (in the note they provided in Box driver version lists and i looked for that on the attachments as my driver version is 22.214.171.124-1p)
This is an SLES 10 SP4 server and HP Proliant BL685C G5
So is my BIOS Version really "A08" ?
As per "dmidecode" i see as A08 and my question what SPOCK bios list is same as what it displayed in dmidecode? or should i look at different place ? I cannot reboot the box as it is production server?
Any thoughts, really appreciate your response as it would be very helpful.

modeldesc = "HP BLc Emulex LPe1105-HP FC Mezz Option Kit"
