Hi Experts,

Where can I find software drivers for the QLogic QMH2462 4Gb FC HBA Mezzanine HBA?
And how to I install them on Redhat 5.2 for me to be able to see /proc/scsi/scsi .
I have been to the Qlogic website and Hp website but could not find drivers for Redhat Enterprize server 5.2 for the QLogic QMH2462 4Gb FC HBA Mezzanine HBA on ProLiant BL680c G5.

Can you please assist me with this problem and guide me in installing or configuring the HBA's.

First of all from what you've posted here you've already have the necessary dirvers in place, your adapter is detected and running. So you'll need no more drivers. If your question is where to find drivers in general you need to go here:
