This package contains the utilities and binaries for upgrading HPE ProLiant QLogic NX2 Gigabit Ethernet NICs Boot code, PXE, UEFI, NCSI, iSCSI, FCoE, CCM and L2 code running under Linux x86_64 platform.

This product now supports the HPE StoreFabric CN1100R-T Converged Network Adapter.

This product now provides the capability of converting an 'HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 533FLR-T Adapter' into a Converged Network Adapter.

Prerequisites:

This package can be used with the HP Smart Update Manager (HPSUM) version 7.0.0.0 or later. Earlier versions of HPSUM cannot install this package correctly.

This package requires the appropriate driver for your network adapter be installed and all Ethernet ports brought up (ifup ethX or ifconfig ethX up) before firmware can be updated.


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

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Updating adapter firmware with rpm installed:

  • Install this NIC firmware rpm with the following command: rpm -ivh <rpm_filename>.rpm. 

This command will extract the contents to "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu."
The CP027566.scexe script is located in the "hp-scexe-compat'' folder. Further information is available in CP027566.txt file in the "hp-firmware-nic-*" folder. The actual name of the "hp-firmware-nic-*" folder is based on the version of the rpm to be installed.  

  • To install the firmware, execute ONE of the following commands:
    • ./CP027566.scexe in the "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/hp-scexe-compat" location.
    • ./hpsetup in the "hp-firmware-nic-*" location.   

  • To uninstall this rpm, execute the folllowing command: rpm -e <rpm_package_name>

Updating adapter firmware without installing the rpm:

  • Extract the contents of the rpm with the following command: rpm2cpio <rpm_filename>.rpm | cpio -id

This will extract the contents of the rpm to the "usr" folder in the current directory.

  • Navigate to the "usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/hp-firmware-nic-*" location and run ./hpsetup to update the firmware. The actual name of the 'hp-firmware-nic-*' folder is based on the version of the rpm.

Additional Information:

  • The results of the firmware upgrade are saved in CP027566.log at "/var/cpq/."
  • The device ID in NPAR (NIC Partitioning) mode is different from the device ID used for Flex10, or (forced) Single Function mode.  For example, adapter device IDs '0x168E' and '0x16A2' become '0x16AE' and '0x16A4,' respectively, after enabling NPAR.
  • Network connectivity may stop during the firmware upgrade process and may need to be restarted after completion.
  • Installing the firmware rpm package (rpm -ivh) does not update the adapter firmware. Installing the rpm merely extracts the rpm content to the local system. Updating the adapter firmware requires following the steps outlined above.
