This Windows Smart Component contains a firmware update for the 6G SAS LFF hard drive models ST1000NM0001(1TB), ST2000NM0001(2TB) in HP P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 configurations.

  1. Improvement for performance at low levels of RV in cabinets (RV below 5 rad/s2).
  2. Increase ramp load routine A2D sample magnitude to insure a full release at low temperatures from the head/suspension assembly protective mechanical latch (2TB only).
  3.  

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.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

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).

GUI option

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.

  2. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory containing the download.

  3. Double click the executable file.

  4. Follow onscreen instructions.


CLI option

Execute the Smart Component by entering the following command: CPxxxxxxx.exe /target <ip_address> /user <username> /passwd <password> /s

where:

  • 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 array controller

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


Important:

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.


Notes:

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.


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


Fixed Issues :

  1. Drive Hang Condition on Second Port When First Port Loses Connection
  2. Masked Unused Interrupt - Masked the presently unused "New primitive received" interrupt off for all configs.
  3. SAS Drives Encounter Assert failures.
  4. DOS Issue When Scanning Scan Units Entirely Mapped Out Due to Defects.
  5. Heavy Near Sequential Read/Write Workload With Head of Queue Causes Miscompare
