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 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.
NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 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 %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\MSA2000_IP.log and flash summary is logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\cpqsetup.log.
IMPORTANT: Please refer to the best practices document for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.
IMPORTANT: FTP and HTTPS/Telnet services must be enabled on the arrays being updated and the corresponding client interfaces enabled on the host system where the smart component is being executed.

Installation instructions using Smart Component:
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).
- Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.
- Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory containing the download.
- Double click the executable file.
- Follow onscreen instructions.
Execute the Smart Component by entering the following command: CPxxxxxxx.exe /target <ip_address> /user <username> /passwd <password> /s
- 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
- For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command CPxxxxxx.exe /h or /?.
