Hi

We have SLES-11-SP3-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso installed in our HP server and planning to upgrading the QHM2672 by replacing it with the one (8.07.00.34.11.3-k) downloaded from HP site.

However, in case any problems occur with 8.07.00.34.11.3-k, we'd like to make sure the current qlogic driver (8.04.00.13.11.3-k) that came with SLES-11-SP3-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso can be re-installed.

Current:
kernel: kernel-default-3.0.76-0.11.1.x86_64.rpm
qlogic driver: QHM2672 8.04.00.13.11.3-k

Here's the question:

Can I simply re-install qla2xxx.ko (8.04.00.13.11.3-k from SLES-11-SP3-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD1.iso) to replace with the driver from HP (8.07.00.34.11.3-k)?

thanks,
Susie
