DETAILS

To maximize your HPE MSA Storage uptime and availability, it is important to keep your HPE MSA firmware current. This video provides instructions for updating your HPE MSA drive firmware by walking you through an actual firmware update. As a best practice, it is recommended to use either the Linux or Windows Smart Component to perform the drive firmware upgrade. This update must be performed while the MSA is offline (no host activity).

Drive firmware updates are required when adding or replacing drives to an existing MSA array configuration or whenever a critical or recommended drive firmware is made available.

HPE recommends visiting http://www.hpe.com/storage/MSAFirmware and http://www.hpe.com/storage/MSADriveFirmware to make sure you are running the most current controller, expansion module, and drive firmware versions for your HPE MSA Storage product:
