This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models HP MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 300GB,450GB,600GB 15K SAS LFF ( HUS156030VLS600, HUS156045VLS600, HUS156060VLS600 )

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 Array reference guide.All firmware flash progress messages are logged to /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log.

IMPORTANT: Please review the failure considerations above before flashing hard drives in MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 configurations.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

dd63e599e7ebbbd2cd77abbd90d9cbc3 CP022252.scexe

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


Installation:

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

  2. Open a Linux command console.

  3. From the directory containing the downloaded file, enable execute access to this module by entering chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe, where CPxxxxxx.scexe represents the downloaded file.

  4. Execute the Smart Component by entering a command similar to the following: ./CPxxxxxx.scexe --target <ip_address> --user <username> --passwd <password>

  5. Follow onscreen instructions.

NOTE:
  • Use the -e or -f option when flashing a device, even if it is up to date.

  • Use the -g option when downgrading.

  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command ./CPxxxxxx.scexe or ./CPxxxxxx.scexe -h.

  • If the user name or password contains an exclamation mark (!), enclose the string in single quotes or enter a backslash (\) before the exclamation point. For example, ’!manage’ or \!manage
