This Windows Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models EH0072FARWC (72GB 15K 6G SAS) and EH0146FARWD (146GB 15K 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 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 %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\MSA2000_IP.log.

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


Installation:

The Smart Component package is a self-extracting executable. You can execute this module from the Windows graphical user interface (GUI) or the command line console (CLI).

GUI option

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

  2. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory containing the download.

  3. Double click the executable file.

  4. Follow onscreen instructions.


CLI option

Execute the Smart Component by entering the following command: CPxxxxxxx.exe /target <ip_address> /user <username> /passwd <password> /s

where:

  • ip_address is the management IP address of the array controller

  • username is the username account with management rights

  • password is the password for username

Instead of command line parameters you can use the following DOS environment variables:

  • oa_address: set this variable for the IP address of array controller

  • oa_username : set this variable for the username of array controller

  • oa_password : set this variable for the password of array controller
