The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the SFF hard drive models EG0300FBDBR (300GB 10K SAS ), EG0450FBDBT (450GB 10K SAS )and EG0600FBDBU (600GB 10K SAS ) when configured in HP P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 storage arrays. Please DO NOT use this package for flashing the drives if they are in any other configurations including MSA2000 G1 array configurations.

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:

Installation:

Installation instructions using Storage Management Utility (SMU)

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.
  2. Locate the firmware file in the extracted folder.
  3. Stop I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  4. Log in to the SMU and, in the Configuration View panel, right-click the system and select Tools > Update Firmware. A table displays currently installed firmware versions.
  5. Select the drives to update.
  6. Click Browse and select the firmware file to install.
  7. Click Install Disk Firmware File. Wait for progress messages to specify that the update is complete.
  8. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each module.

NOTE: Some drive FW requires a power cycle to upgrade.  If the FW version does not update in the SMU display, power cycle the entire array following the process in the HP P2000 G3 User Guide

Installation instructions using FTP

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.
  2. Locate the firmware file in the extracted folder.
  3. Using the SMU, prepare to use FTP:
    1. Determine the network-port IP addresses of the system controllers.

    2. Verify that the system FTP service is enabled.
    3. Verify that the user you will log in as has permission to use the FTP interface and has manage access rights.
       
  4. Stop all I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  5. Open a command prompt (Windows) or a terminal window (UNIX), and navigate to the directory containing the firmware file to load.
    1. Enter ftp <controller-network-address>. (For example: ftp 10.1.0.9)
    2. Log in as an FTP user. (P2000 environments: user = ftp password = !ftp; MSA2000 environments: user = ftp password = flash)

    3. Enter: put <firmware-file> disk:enclosure-ID>:slot-number

  6. Repeat these steps to load the firmware on additional drives.
  7. Quit the FTP session.
  8. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each module.

Note: Some drive FW requires a power cycle to upgrade.  If the FW version does not update in the SMU display, power cycle the entire array following the process in the HP P2000 G3 User Guide

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.

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPD6

Previous released version:
      HPD5

Problems Fixed:     

  • Possible HDD hang when the drive is used in a dual domain or dual path fail-over environment and communication to one path is suddenly lost
  • Over-writing data written via the fail over port when data is written via a port performing interface recovery (discovery)
  • A situation where the drive reports self test in progress erroneously after self test was interrupted by a power cycle or hot plug

Known Issues:
      
None


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


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

Version:HPDA (24 Oct 2013)
Fixes

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


  • This firmware corrects a possible condition in which stale data might be written to the disk.  This results in unexpected data being returned in subsequent requests.  This data issue has been duplicated in laboratory firmware stress tests.                                            

 


Version:HPD7 (18 Jun 2012)
Fixes

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



Problems Fixed:

  • This version prevents an initialization handshake issue that could result in the controller not recognizing that the drive is installed. This results in the drive being reported as bad or missing.
  • This version corrects a rare issue found in previous versions of the hard disk firmware. If the WRITE CACHE is Enabled on the hard drive, the drive WRITE CACHE can be partially over written with older data. This rare situation results in unexpected data being written to the drive and being returned on subsequent READs. This issue does not affect MSA2000/P2000 as ALL DRIVE WRITE CACHE is disabled when used in the MSA2000 G2 and P2000.
