I'm working on a solution that has many HP servers with 2x 1860-2p PCI adapters. I need to enable BIOS on 1st port of the second adapter in order to PXE-boot. We can do it manually from Alt-B prompt but this is a big problem because we have tens of servers to configure.
I tried bcu util (bfa_util_linux_noioctl-18.104.22.168_ga-0.noarch.rpm) on my RHEL 6.5 diskless image but I get this error message everytime I run it:
./bcu ethboot --query 2/0 ERROR: port id "2/0" in command is incorrect ./bcu ethboot --enable 2/0 ERROR: port id "2/0" in command is incorrect

Brocade HBA as be acquired by QLOGIC and are no longer supported by Brocade.
In any case, in order to configure PXE, - as fair as i remember - you can do that with the unified RHEL DUD drivers, however is unknow to if such a package is available for 6.5, I know only the DUD 5.7
would suggest to ask by QLOGIC for such a package or if 5.7 is compatible and supported
