This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models MM1000FBFVR (1TB 7K 6G SAS) MM0500FBFVQ (500GB 7K SAS) when configured in HP P2000 G3 MSA 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 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.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the Failure Considerations under release notes for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in P2000/MSA2000 configurations.

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


Installation:

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

  2. Open a Linux command console.

  3. From the directory containing the downloaded file, enable execute access to this module by entering chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe, where CPxxxxxx.scexe represents the downloaded file.

  4. Execute the Smart Component by entering a command similar to the following: ./CPxxxxxx.scexe --target <ip_address> --user <username> --passwd <password>

  5. Follow onscreen instructions.

NOTE:
  • Use the -e or -f option when flashing a device, even if it is up to date.

  • Use the -g option when downgrading.

  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command ./CPxxxxxx.scexe or ./CPxxxxxx.scexe -h.

  • If the user name or password contains an exclamation mark (!), enclose the string in single quotes or enter a backslash (\) before the exclamation point. For example, ’!manage’ or \!manage

     Firmware Flash Component for Linux - HP  P2000/MSA2000  1TB 6G, 500GB 3G SAS  SFF Hard Drive ( MM1000FBFVR, MM0500FBFVQ )

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPD5

Enhancements/New Features:
     1. This firmware corrects an issue only observed in HP EVA systems.  This firmware resolves a false drive failure of the EVA quorum drive backup target drive, when an EVA quorum drive is failed or removed.

Problems Fixed:
   
None

Known Issues:
     None

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 - HPE recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.

Version:HPD9 (13 Jan 2016)
Fixes

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


Following issue is fixed in this firmware:

  • This Firmware prevents a condition in which data fails to be committed to disk after the host issues a hard reset in a lab stress test environment with write cache enabled.

Version:HPD8 (14 Nov 2013)
Fixes

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


  • 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 fixes this issue.
  • 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.
