The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the LFF hard drive model ST3450857SS(450GB 15K SAS 6G) when configured in HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 storage arrays. Please DO NOT use this package for flashing the drives if they are in any other configurations including MSA2000 G1 array configurations.

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

Use this firmware to flash supported drives in P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 configurations ONLY.

Do not use this firmware to flash the drives if the drives are in any other configurations.


Initial release of specially packaged firmware for use in P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 configurations ONLY.

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, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

ea26712e727bd2a120d71944afb9eee68d286aaac548b2d8eddb98470cfabd52 90-00000926.fla

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


Installation:
Installation instructions using Storage Management Utility (SMU)

  1. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.
  2. Stop I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  3. 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.
  4. Select the drives to update.
  5. Click Browse and select the firmware file to install.
  6. Click Install Disk Firmware File. Wait for progress messages to specify that the update is complete.
  7. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each module.
  8. If the old firmware version is still displayed in the SMU, cycle power on the enclosure. And then log in to the SMU to verify the firmware version.
Installation instructions using FTP
  1. Place the downloaded firmware binary file in a temporary directory.

  2. Do one of the following:

    1. To update all drives of the type that the firmware applies to, proceed to the next step.

    2. To update specific drives, determine the enclosure number and slot number of the drive.

  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 one of the following commands:

    • To update all drives of the type that the firmware applies to, enter: put <firmware-file> disk flash.
    • To update a specific drive, enter: put <firmware-file> disk:enclosure-ID>:slot-number flash.
  6. If needed, 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.

  9. If the old firmware version is still displayed in the SMU, cycle power on the enclosure. And then log in to the SMU to verify the firmware version.
