This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models EG0900FBLSK (900GB 10K 6G SAS), EG0600FBLSH (600GB 10K 6G SAS) , EG0450FBLSF (450GB 10K 6G SAS) and EG0300FBLSE (300GB 10K 6G SAS) when configured in HP P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 storage arrays.

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 P2000/MSA2000 storage system

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 Modular Storage Array  2000 Family reference guide.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the Failure Considerations under release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in P2000/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 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

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPD3

Enhancements/New Features:
     None

Problems Fixed:

   
This firmware prevents the following:

  • Firmware version HPD3 corrects an issue which causes the drive to reset internally when a link is lost due to communication error.  If this issue occurs, it causes aborted commands, which are typically recovered by system error recovery but causes reset entries in the drive error logs and may momentarily slow performance.

Known Issues:
     None
 

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:
Firmware on the listed drives can be updated when attached to any P2000 G3 or MSA2000 array controller enclosure.

Version:HPD8 (23 Jun 2015)
Fixes

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


Following fix is added in HPD8 :

  • Hard disk drive firmware HPD8 resolves the issue where HP ProLiant servers would power down due a hard drive overtemp condition that was falsely reported.

Version:HPD7 (13 Dec 2013)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HP requires users update to this version immediately.


  • After long-term use, the drive may develop a mechanical condition preventing the heads from fully unloading onto the ramp, potentially causing data loss or mechanical damage after power loss or power cycle. This firmware prevents this condition.
  • Under rare command timing conditions, the drive may abort a write prior to committing data to disk, resulting in data loss. This firmware prevents this condition.

Version:HPD5 (10 Apr 2012)
Fixes

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


Added support for EVA.
