This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models EG0300FBDSP (300GB 10K 6G SAS), EG0450FBDSQ (450GB 10K 6G SAS) and EG0600FBDSR (600GB 10K 6G SAS) in HP MSA 2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 configurations.

Prerequisites:

CAUTION: Updating the firmware of disk drives in a virtual disk risks the loss of data and causes the drives to be temporarily inaccessible.

IMPORTANT: Ensure that no other user is performing administrative functions on the HP MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 storage system

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 is an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade. For more information, see the HP 2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.All firmware flash progress messages are logged to /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 configurations.

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.

  2. Open a Linux command console.

  3. From the directory containing the downloaded file, enable execute access to this module by entering chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe, where CPxxxxxx.scexe represents the downloaded file.

  4. Execute the Smart Component by entering a command similar to the following: ./CPxxxxxx.scexe --target <ip_address> --user <username> --passwd <password>

  5. Follow onscreen instructions.

NOTE:
  • Use the -e or -f option when flashing a device, even if it is up to date.

  • Use the -g option when downgrading.

  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command ./CPxxxxxx.scexe or ./CPxxxxxx.scexe -h.

  • If the user name or password contains an exclamation mark (!), enclose the string in single quotes or enter a backslash (\) before the exclamation point. For example, ’!manage’ or \!manage
