This component upgrades the operating firmware for Converged Network and Network only adapters.

We have separate components to update fibre channel and converged network adapters.  This is a converged network adapter update component.

Updated CNA (XE100 series) firmware 
 

Contains:
CNA (BE3) firmware 11.1.183.23
CNA (XE100 series) firmware 11.1.183.62

Prerequisites:

Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/

The HPE supplied NIC driver must be installed prior to this firmware component if you want to update the firmware for the CNA. The driver is available on the HPE.com website at http://www.hpe.com/.

HPE Emulex 10Gbe Driver for Linux, version 11.1.183.21

Additional requirements:

The target environment must have the libsysfs or sysfsutils package installed prior to the installation of the firmware update kit. If not already present, the libsysfs or sysfsutils package can be obtained from the operating system installation media.

Environment must have 32-bit netlink library (libnl.so) installed for component to be able to discover Emulex HBAs/CNAs
Environment must be running the syslog daemon for the flash engine to run

Note: To enable the FCoE/iSCSI protocol on devices that support it, please install the appropriate HPE supplied Emulex FCoE/iSCSI driver.  The FCoE protocol also requires the HPE Emulex Enablement Kit be installed. The driver and enablement kit are also available on the HPE.com website at http://www.hpe.com/.

The Enablement Kit requires that the target environment have the libHBAAPI package installed from your OS installation media.

Install the FC/FCoE Driver Kit, reboot, and then install the Enablement Kit.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Firmware installation is a two-step process.  Install the firmware installation tool rpm, then execute the installed tool to update the firmware.
 
 1. Install the firmware installation tool:  rpm -Uhv <rpm_package_name>.rpm  This extracts the firmware installation tool to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (64-bit systems) or /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu (32-bit systems) in an hp-firmware-* folder.
 
 2. cd to the appropriate location for your system, and update the firmware by executing ./.hpsetup
 
 When the firmware installation completes, you may remove the firmware installation tool from your system using the rpm -e command.

Installation Instructions

Prerequisites:

Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/

The HPE supplied NIC driver must be installed prior to this firmware component if you want to update the firmware for the CNA. The driver is available on the HPE.com website at http://www.hpe.com/.

HPE Emulex 10Gbe Driver for Linux, version 11.1.183.21

Additional requirements:

The target environment must have the libsysfs or sysfsutils package installed prior to the installation of the firmware update kit. If not already present, the libsysfs or sysfsutils package can be obtained from the operating system installation media.

Environment must have 32-bit netlink library (libnl.so) installed for component to be able to discover Emulex HBAs/CNAs
Environment must be running the syslog daemon for the flash engine to run

Note: To enable the FCoE/iSCSI protocol on devices that support it, please install the appropriate HPE supplied Emulex FCoE/iSCSI driver.  The FCoE protocol also requires the HPE Emulex Enablement Kit be installed. The driver and enablement kit are also available on the HPE.com website at http://www.hpe.com/.

The Enablement Kit requires that the target environment have the libHBAAPI package installed from your OS installation media.

Install the FC/FCoE Driver Kit, reboot, and then install the Enablement Kit.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

70f02d90b393c82198756df0ed8bf6cf0555092ebfb67661f21c75985582ea2d RPMS/x86_64/hp-firmware-cna-emulex-2016.10.05-1.2.x86_64.rpm

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

Firmware installation is a two-step process.  Install the firmware installation tool rpm, then execute the installed tool to update the firmware.
 
 1. Install the firmware installation tool:  rpm -Uhv <rpm_package_name>.rpm  This extracts the firmware installation tool to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu (64-bit systems) or /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu (32-bit systems) in an hp-firmware-* folder.
 
 2. cd to the appropriate location for your system, and update the firmware by executing ./.hpsetup
 
 When the firmware installation completes, you may remove the firmware installation tool from your system using the rpm -e command.
