This Windows Smart Component contains a firmware update for SFF hard drive models EG0300FCHHR (300GB 10K SAS 6G), EG0450FCHHT (450GB 10K SAS 6G), EG0600FCHHU (600GB 10K SAS 6G) and EG0900FCHHV (900GB 10K SAS 6G) in HP MSA 1040/2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Arrays.

◾Improved write protection robustness before drive spin down.
◾Implemented minor performance improvements in RAID environments.

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 1040/2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Array.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 1040/2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 is an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade. For more information, see the HP Modular Storage Array 2000 Family Reference Guide. All firmware flash progress messages are logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\MSA2000_IP.log and flashing summary is logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\cpqsetup.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP MSA 1040/2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Arrays.

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 that username
