Firmware Dependency:
     None

Enhancements/New Features for HPD8 (B): 

    None

Problems Fixed:

This firmware changes the response to a SMART trip for changes in the motor electric current so that it:

  • Spins down any drive that exceeds established motor current thresholds and identifies it for removal.
  • Prevents the drive from spinning up again after a power cycle in case it is not removed.

Known Issues:
     None

Version:HPD9 (18 Aug 2017)
Fixes

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

  • Online firmware flashing of drives attached to a Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or a ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported. Only offline firmware flashing of drives is supported for these configurations.
  • Online drive firmware update available for Smart Array Controllers configured in systems running supported Linux, Microsoft Windows, and VMware environments. All other OSes would require an offline update using the Service Pack for Proliant and Smart Update Manager.

Important Notes:

REMOVED - This version of the System ROM is NO LONGER AVAILABLE for download.

Refer the customer advisory published here https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-a00040080en_us for more details on the issue and the impact of the issue.

Problems Fixed:

  • An unexpected drive lockup could occur due to drive motor currents exceeding the normal operating limits. Firmware version HPD9 implements new drive motor current thresholds for SMART trip, which would initialize a controlled, drive spin-down operation if excessive drive motor currents are reported.

Version:HPD8(B) (24 Oct 2016)
Fixes

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

  • Online firmware flashing of drives attached to an HPE Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or an HPE ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported. Only offline firmware flashing of drives is supported for these configurations.
  • Online drive firmware update available for Smart Array Controllers configured in systems running supported Linux, Microsoft Windows, and VMware environments. All other OSes would require an offline update using the SPP and HP SUM.
  • Customers who already installed firmware version HPD5 do not need to update to HPD8 (B).

Problems Fixed:

  • Reliability enhancement for applications that write data to a narrow range of tracks.
  • New SMART trip when device senses an abnormal change in the motor electric current.
Enhancements

Enhancements/New Features for HPD8 (B): 

  • Added support for Microsoft Windows Server 2016.
