This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for 15K SAS LFF hard drive model ST3146356SS (146GB), ST3300656SS (300GB) and ST3450856SS (450GB) in HP P2000/MSA2000 configurations.

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: When flashing disks behind HP MSA2000/P2000 controller running firmware version TS240, do not use the smart component. Use binary firmware from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=4118559&swItem=MTX-970d0b0f8f334ccab76c94d3a0&prodNameId=4304839&swEnvOID=4064&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0 and flash the disks using SMU or FTP.

IMPORTANT: Ensure that no other user is performing administrative functions on the P2000/MSA2000 storage system

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in P2000/MSA2000 configurations.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP P2000/MSA2000 is an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade. For more information, see the HP P2000/MSA2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.

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
