This Smart Component provides firmware for the following drive model: ST31000340NS (1TB 3G 7.2K 3.5-inch SATA). This Smart Component is capable of updating all instances of this drive model when attached to one of the following configurations: HP StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Arrays (MSA2012fc, MSA2212fc, MSA2012i, MSA2012sa, MSA2312fc, MSA2324fc, MSA2312i, MSA2324i, MSA2312sa,MSA2324sa.)

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 MSA2000 storage system

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP StorageWorks MSA2000 is an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade. For more information, see the HP StorageWorks 2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in MSA2000 configurations.


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

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


Installation:

  1. Place the Smart Component in a temporary directory.
  2. Enable execute access to this component using the command chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe. 
  3. From the same directory, execute the Smart Component. For example: ./CPXXXXXX.scexe --target --user --password
  4. Follow the directions given by the Smart Component.

Failure Considerations:

  1. Single ported drive will not be flashed if the owner controller of that drive is not accessible through  network
  2. Drives will not be flashed if the drive is in a virtual disk which is being initialized, expanded, reconstructed, verified, or scrubbed.
  3. Flash operation on any pending disks will be aborted if the currently flashed drive is in LEFTOVR state or the virtual disk containing this disk is found to be in offline or critical state. If this does occur, the vdisk can be restored to online status by changing the drive status from leftover to available and then adding the drive to the vdisk as a spare. If a global spare drive was available, it will have been used to restore the vdisk to online status.

Supported Devices and Features:

MSA2312fc, MSA2324fc, MSA2312sa, MSA2324sa, MSA2312i, MSA2324i, MSA2012fc, MSA2212fc, MSA2012i, MSA2012sa


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


The HP SATA hard drive models with firmware versions prior to SN06, may experience erroneous drive failure indications. When this occurs, the drive will display a solid amber LED, but upon a hot-plug removal and re-seat or server reboot, the drive will function normally. Erroneous failures may occur when the disk drives appear to be idle or when on-line and active.
