The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the SFF hard drive models EG0300FBDBR (300GB 10K SAS ), EG0450FBDBT (450GB 10K SAS )and EG0600FBDBU (600GB 10K SAS ) when configured in HP MSA 1040/2040/P2000 G3/MSA2000 G2 storage arrays.

Prerequisites:
WARNING! Do not cycle power or restart devices during a firmware update. If the update is interrupted or there is a power failure, the module could become inoperative. If this occurs, contact technical support. The module may need to be returned to the factory for reprogramming.

CAUTION: Before upgrading firmware, ensure that the storage system configuration is stable and is not being reconfigured or changed in any way. If configuration changes are in progress, monitor them and wait until they are completed before proceeding with the upgrade.

IMPORTANT: As with any firmware upgrade, it is a recommended best practice to ensure that you have a full backup prior to the upgrade.

NOTE: Drives of the same model in the storage system must have the same firmware revision.

NOTE: To install this firmware, you must download the firmware package from the HP website and save the file to your local filesystem.


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

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


Installation:
Installation instructions using Storage Management Utility (SMU):

  1. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.
  2. Stop I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  3. Log in to the SMU select Tools > Update Firmware. A table displays currently installed firmware versions.
  4. Select the drives to update. Click Browse and select the firmware file to install.
  5. Click Install Disk Firmware File. 
  6. Wait for progress messages to specify that the update is complete.
  7. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each disk drive.  
Installation instructions using FTP:     

Using the SMU, prepare to use FTP:
  • Determine the network-port IP addresses of the system controllers.
  • Verify that the system FTP service is enabled.
  • Verify that the user you will log in as has permission to use the FTP interface and has manage access rights. 
Obtain address of the disks  
  • Obtain the address of each disk to be loaded in the form  (for example, 0:1 and 1:9) and obtain the firmware revision of each of these disks.
  • Determine which disks need to be updated based on the revision.
  • Note: In the WBI, the disk addresses are displayed by clicking on each enclosure in the Configuration View and then selecting the desired disk. The needed data is displayed in the fields labeled 'Enclosure ID','Slot', and'Revision'.
  • Note: In the CLI, enter 'show disks'. The required information is displayed in the columns labeled 'Location' and 'Revision'. 
Instructions for updating disk firmware using FTP  
 
  1. Stop all I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  2. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.
  3. Open a command prompt (Windows) or a terminal window (UNIX), and navigate to the directory containing the firmware file to load.
  4. Enter ftp . (For example: ftp 10.1.0.9)
  5. Log in via FTP with user name and password
  6. To update a specific drive, Type put filename disk:enclosure-ID:slot-number where filename is the new firmware image to load.
  7. It typically takes several minutes for the new firmware to messages will be displayed in this FTP interface during this time WARNING! Do not power cycle or restart during the firmware update as this can result in loss of capabilities for this unit. 
  8. Repeat steps 6-7 for each disk to update in each enclosure.
  9. Using SMU or CLI verify that the proper firmware version appears for each disk drive.

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.


Important:
CAUTION: Updating firmware on drives in a virtual disk causes the drives to be temporarily inaccessible and increases the risk of data loss

IMPORTANT: Drive upgrades are an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade.

Version:HPD7 (18 Jun 2012)
Fixes

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



Problems Fixed:

  • 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 - HP 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 - HP 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
