Why would you expect to need a new OBP to run OpenSolaris 2009.06 on a
blade 150?

I've never had to upgrade OBP to run Solaris Express.  I currently have
build 70 on a E250, build 98 on a U80, build 105 on a U5, build 107 on
E420r, and build 108 on a V100.  I haven't updated OBP on any of those
machines, and I believe all of them are older than a Blade 150 would

That said, if you find one OBP update for that platform, I believe it
will have an Obsoleted by: field, to point you to the next one, if there
is a next one.
