This Windows Smart Component contains a firmware update for LFF hard drive models ST3146356SS (146GB 15K SAS 6G), ST3300656SS (300GB 15K SAS 6G) and ST3450856SS (450GB 15K SAS 6G) in HP P2000 G3 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 HP P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Arrays.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 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. All firmware flash progress messages are logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\MSA2000_IP.log and flashing summary is logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\cpqsetup.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Arrays.
