The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the SFF hard drive models EG0900FBLSK (900GB 10K SAS 6G), EG0600FBLSH (600GB 10K SAS 6G), EG0450FBLSF (450GB 10K SAS 6G) and EG0300FBLSE (300GB 10K SAS 6G) when configured in HP MSA 1040/2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 Storage Arrays.

Prerequisites:
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: Before upgrading firmware, ensure that the storage system configuration is stable and is not being reconfigured or changed in any way. If configuration changes are in progress, monitor them and wait until they are completed before proceeding with the upgrade.

IMPORTANT: As with any firmware upgrade, it is a recommended best practice to ensure that you have a full backup prior to the upgrade.

NOTE: Drives of the same model in the storage system must have the same firmware revision.

NOTE: To install this firmware, you must download the firmware package from the HP website and save the file to your local filesystem.


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

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


Installation:
Installation instructions using Storage Management Utility (SMU):

  1. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.
  2. Stop I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  3. Log in to the SMU select Tools > Update Firmware. A table displays currently installed firmware versions.
  4. Select the drives to update. Click Browse and select the firmware file to install.
  5. Click Install Disk Firmware File. 
  6. Wait for progress messages to specify that the update is complete.
  7. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each disk drive.  
Installation instructions using FTP:     

Using the SMU, prepare to use FTP:
  • Determine the network-port IP addresses of the system controllers.
  • Verify that the system FTP service is enabled.
  • Verify that the user you will log in as has permission to use the FTP interface and has manage access rights. 
Obtain address of the disks  
  • Obtain the address of each disk to be loaded in the form  (for example, 0:1 and 1:9) and obtain the firmware revision of each of these disks.
  • Determine which disks need to be updated based on the revision.
  • Note: In the WBI, the disk addresses are displayed by clicking on each enclosure in the Configuration View and then selecting the desired disk. The needed data is displayed in the fields labeled 'Enclosure ID','Slot', and'Revision'.
  • Note: In the CLI, enter 'show disks'. The required information is displayed in the columns labeled 'Location' and 'Revision'. 
Instructions for updating disk firmware using FTP  
 
  1. Stop all I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  2. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.
  3. Open a command prompt (Windows) or a terminal window (UNIX), and navigate to the directory containing the firmware file to load.
  4. Enter ftp . (For example: ftp 10.1.0.9)
  5. Log in via FTP with user name and password
  6. To update a specific drive, Type put filename disk:enclosure-ID:slot-number where filename is the new firmware image to load.
  7. It typically takes several minutes for the new firmware to messages will be displayed in this FTP interface during this time WARNING! Do not power cycle or restart during the firmware update as this can result in loss of capabilities for this unit. 
  8. Repeat steps 6-7 for each disk to update in each enclosure.
  9. Using SMU or CLI verify that the proper firmware version appears for each disk drive.

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


Important:
CAUTION: Updating firmware on drives in a virtual disk causes the drives to be temporarily inaccessible and increases the risk of data loss

IMPORTANT: Drive upgrades are an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade.


Supported Devices and Features:
Firmware on the listed drives can be updated when attached to any MSA 1040/2040/P2000 G3 or MSA2000 G2 array controller enclosure.


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

  • After long term use of the disk, a rare condition might occur following a power cycle where the drive heads may land on areas of the disk containing data, which could potentially cause data loss or mechanical damage.
  • This firmware prevents a rare condition that may occur during a WRITE SAME command sequence that can result in incorrect data being written to the hard drive.

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.
