This package contains a firmware update for the hard drive models DG0146FARVU, DG0146BAMYQ, EG0146FAWJC (each of 146GB 10K SAS) and DG0300FARVV, DG0300BAMYR, EG0300FAWJD (each of 300GB 10K SAS) in P2000/MSA2000 configurations.

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


Decreases the number of command timeouts caused by error recovery by improving drive background data checking algorithms, particularly in high usage environments.

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
