This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for SFF hard drive models MO0200FCTRN (200GB 6G SSD SAS), MO0400FCTRP (400GB 6G SSD SAS) and MO0800FCTRQ (800GB 6G SSD SAS) in HP MSA 2040 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: 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 Storage Arrays.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 2040 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 Reference Guides. All firmware flash progress messages are logged to /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log and flash summary is logged to /var/cpq/Component.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the best practices document for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP MSA 2040 Storage Arrays.
