Prerequisites:

Firmware updates may be accomplished using the inbox or Out of Box (OOB) drivers.  Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/ 

The HPE supplied enablement kit must be installed prior to this firmware component being identified by SUM for deployment.

The OOB driver and enablement kit are available on the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) which is available at http://www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with the following SHA-256 Checksum values:

8e81a8e1f936a483648df933c86ec1c465970780aa0cc0fcd5a6a8c59e9cab4f RPMS/x86_64/firmware-fc-qlogic-2017.06.01-1.54.x86_64.rpm

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Firmware installation is a two-step process.  Install the firmware installation tool rpm, then execute the installed tool to update the firmware.
 
1. Install the firmware installation tool:  rpm -Uhv <rpm_package_name>.rpm  This extracts the firmware installation tool to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (64-bit systems) in an firmware-* folder.
 
2. cd to the appropriate location for your system, and update the firmware by executing ./.setup
 
When the firmware installation completes, you may remove the firmware installation tool from your system using the rpm -e command.
 

NOTE: During the flash operation, the message "No Adapter Found!" may appear in the logs. These messages do not indicate a problem with the firmware flash operation and may be ignored.

Fixed the following:

Gen 4 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter:

Firmware:

  • Unexpected behavior of an Initiator performance seen when certain targets return otherwise good FCP_RSP IUs, but containing a non-zero parameter field. This was caused by configuring the application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) to treat this condition as a non-performance case
  • Firmware system unexpected behavior that occurred in target mode during an Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) exchange for a write Input Output (IO)
  • Firmware system unexpected behavior or non-fatal unexpected behavior resulting from the aborted Direct Memory Access (DMA) of an FCP _RSP IU payload to the host.
  • Eliminate stalls when transmitting response frame after data frames in certain cases.

BIOS:

  • NONE

UEFI:

  • NONE

Gen 5 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter:

Firmware:

  • The link did not come up with a certain 16G Small Form- factor Pluggable (SFP) model that required longer time to complete a write access than the firmware expected
  • After the link was brought down over an electrical connection, the Loss of Sync counter of the Link Error Status Block was not incremented due to an unhandled transition in the FC_port state machine
  • Unexpected behavior of an Initiator performance seen when certain targets return otherwise good FCP_RSP IUs, but containing a non-zero parameter field. This was caused by configuring the application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) to treat this condition as a non-performance case

Installation Instructions

Prerequisites:

Firmware updates may be accomplished using the inbox or Out of Box (OOB) drivers.  Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/ 

The HPE supplied enablement kit must be installed prior to this firmware component being identified by SUM for deployment.

The OOB driver and enablement kit are available on the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) which is available at http://www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with the following SHA-256 Checksum values:

8e81a8e1f936a483648df933c86ec1c465970780aa0cc0fcd5a6a8c59e9cab4f RPMS/x86_64/firmware-fc-qlogic-2017.06.01-1.54.x86_64.rpm

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Firmware installation is a two-step process.  Install the firmware installation tool rpm, then execute the installed tool to update the firmware.
 
1. Install the firmware installation tool:  rpm -Uhv <rpm_package_name>.rpm  This extracts the firmware installation tool to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (64-bit systems) in an firmware-* folder.
 
2. cd to the appropriate location for your system, and update the firmware by executing ./.setup
 
When the firmware installation completes, you may remove the firmware installation tool from your system using the rpm -e command.
 

NOTE: During the flash operation, the message "No Adapter Found!" may appear in the logs. These messages do not indicate a problem with the firmware flash operation and may be ignored.

  • Firmware system unexpected behavior that occurred in target mode during an Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) exchange for a write Input Output (IO)
  • Firmware system unexpected behavior or non-fatal unexpected behavior resulting from the aborted Direct Memory Access (DMA) of an FCP _RSP IU payload to the host.
  • Eliminate stalls when transmitting response frame after data frames in certain cases.

BIOS:

  • NONE

UEFI:
