This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for SFF hard drive models MM1000JEFRB (1TB 12G SAS 7.2K) and MM2000JEFRC (2TB 12G SAS 7.2K) in HP MSA 1040/2040 Storage Arrays.

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: 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 HP MSA 1040/2040 Storage Arrays.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 1040/2040 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 /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log and flash summary is logged to /var/cpq/Component.log.

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

Version:HPD8 (24 Aug 2018)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


Following fixes were added to this version of firmware:

  • This firmware allows the drive to meet the requirements for Azure Stack certification. 
  • This firmware contains a change to the reported drive serial number in VPD page 80.  It will now report the same as is displayed on the drive label.  Any removed characters are replaced with blank place holders so the log format will not be changed.

Version:HPD7 (18 Jan 2018)
Fixes

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


Following fixes were added to this version of firmware:
