This Windows Smart Component contains a firmware update for LFF hard drive models HUS726020ALS214 (2TB 12G SAS 7.2K) and HUS726040ALS214 (4TB 12G SAS 7.2K) in HPE MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.

Following enhancements were added to this version of firmware:

  • Improved random read performance for certain workloads
  • Improved Sequential Write performance

Prerequisites:

WARNING! Do not power cycle 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.

IMPORTANT: Ensure that no other user is performing administrative functions on the HPE MSA 1040/2040 or P2000 G3 Storage Array.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HPE MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 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 Reference Guides. All firmware flash progress messages are logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\MSA2000_IP.log and flash summary is logged to %systemdrive%\CPQSYSTEM\Log\cpqsetup.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the best practices document for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HPE MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.

IMPORTANT: HTTPS or Telnet service must be enabled on the arrays being updated and the corresponding connection must not be blocked by any firewall on the host system where the smart component is being executed. The Smart Component will manage the FTP settings and PFU settings (enabled or disabled) in the arrays during flashing.


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

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


Installation:

Installation instructions using Smart Component:

The Smart Component package is a self-extracting executable. You can execute this module from the Windows graphical user interface (GUI) or the command line console (CLI).

GUI option:

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.
  2. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory containing the download.
  3. Double click the executable file.
  4. Follow onscreen instructions. After you are prompted for logon information, enter credentials for an account with management access rights.
  5. Wait for the installation to complete. Upon completion, a confirmation message is displayed.

CLI option:

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.
  2. Using Windows command prompt, navigate to the directory containing the download.
  3. Execute the Smart Component by entering the following command:        

    CPxxxxxxx.exe /target <ip_address> /user <username> /passwd <password> /s
    where:
  •  ip_address is the management IP address of the array controller
  •  username is the username account with management rights
  •  password is the password for username

Instead of command line parameters you can use the following DOS environment variables:

  •  oa_address: set this variable for the IP address of array controller
  •  oa_username : set this variable for the username of array controller
  •  oa_password : set this variable for the password of that username.

Wait for the installation to complete. Upon completion, a confirmation message is displayed.

NOTE:

  • Stop all I/O to array before starting the firmware update.
  • When prompted for logon information, enter credentials for an account with management access rights.
  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command CPxxxxxx.exe /h or /?
