Solaris 10 hba firmware upgrades need help please

Greetings

Have some solaris 10 servers that need hba firmware upgrades, but I am told that those are in the Jumbo Patch Bundle, Which would be great except /var on this server is not large enough to run the patch bundle due to the way sun changes this and know requires a boat load of free space.

Please save comments on trying to redo var to get more space we are working on that

Really need to know if this can be done outside of the patch bundle.

Many thanks

You can certainly do just the HBA upgrade. All the jumbo patch bundle is is a collection of individual patches applied in a particular order. You just need to determine which patch(es) are the HBA firmware you need then download those specific patches and install them.
