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 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 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

Version:HPD7 (26 Sep 2012)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


The following issues were fixed in this HPD7 firmware release: 

  • This version prevents an initialization handshake issue that could result in the controller not recognizing that the drive is installed. This results in the drive being reported as bad or missing.
  • This version corrects a rare issue found in previous versions of the hard disk firmware. If the WRITE CACHE is Enabled on the hard drive, the drive WRITE CACHE can be partially over written with older data. This rare situation results in unexpected data being written to the drive and being returned on subsequent READs. This issue does not affect MSA2000/P2000 as ALL DRIVE WRITE CACHE is disabled when used in the MSA2000 G2 and P2000.

Version:HPD6 (5 Oct 2011)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


This update fixes the following issues:

  • Possible HDD hang when the drive is used in a dual domain or dual path fail-over environment and communication to one path is suddenly lost.
  • Over-writing data written via the fail over port when data is written via a port performing interface recovery (discovery).
  • A situation where the drive reports self test in progress erroneously after self test was interrupted by a power cycle or hot plug.

Version:HPD5 (20 Sep 2011)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.


  • Corrected a check condition
  • Corrected an inaccurate report of supported operational codes
  • Corrected an issue when zero sense data is returned
  • Corrected a timer issue to clear commands on lost port connection
  • Corrected an issue in self test when interrupted by reset
Enhancements

  • Fixed a drive hang during a reset condition
  • Improved verification of command overlap during port interface recovery
