You need to do couple of things .
You have to upgrade your firmware first . also down load the driver for this product A6684A from hp site and install it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have already downloaded and installed the driver (td). I have downloaded and am prepared to upgrade the firmware, but would like to be able to recover back to the old firmware in case of a problem. It's the old firmware (38.40) I'm looking for, for recovery purposes.

take the ignite backup of your system before you do the patch upgrade for firmware. If you have any issues after the firmware upgrade, you can take your system back to the Pre upgrade state by booting from the ignite backup tape. This is the backup startegy for any patch upgrade. If its a single patch you can try swremove the patch .

I didn't think the ignite backup (make_tape_recovery) would cover a firmware update. I guess I'm not sure where the firmware update actually occurs. I didn't think it was put onto a mounted filesystem, which is what ignite backs up, right?
I have heard the patch could be installed by swinstall for some systems, but I have not been able to identify any such patch for the D380. I was only able to find the one that must be installed from a tape.

I also have a couple of old D380s for which I recently bought J3515A 10/100 network cards, and they are not recognised when they are installed. I can no longer find any place to get these patches, so I was wondering if you still had CULU4211 stashed away somewhere, and could I please ask you for a copy?
I have one last legacy application which I still have to keep in life-support mode on these old boxes, and I need to get the J3515's working so I can join a 100/1000-only network.
Here's hoping... :-)
