Due to system security configuration set to "high", a supported system may experience any of the following errors when attempting to install or update the system with Firmware Flash Component for Windows - HP P2000/MSA2000 15K 6G SAS LFF Hard Drive ST3146356SS (146GB), ST3300656SS (300GB) and ST3450856SS (450GB) firmware. version 0009:

  • "This program has been blocked for your protection"
  • "Blocked"
  • "Not Trusted"
  • MSIExec installation error (Return code: 1625)
  • "The recommended software listed below could not be installed…"

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: When flashing disks behind HP MSA2000/P2000 controller running firmware version TS240, do not use the smart component. Use binary firmware from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=4118559&swItem=MTX-970d0b0f8f334ccab76c94d3a0&prodNameId=4304839&swEnvOID=4064&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0 and flash the disks using SMU or FTP.

IMPORTANT: Ensure that no other user is performing administrative functions on the P2000/MSA2000 storage system

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

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 P2000/MSA2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.

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


Installation:

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.


CLI option

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 array controller
