This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models EG0146FARTR (146GB 10K SAS 6G) and EG0300FARTT (300GB 10K SAS 6G) in HP P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 configurations.

This firmware improves the hard drive servo control which reduces the number of positioning errors.

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

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 2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.

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

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


Installation:

  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.

  2. Open a Linux command console.

  3. From the directory containing the downloaded file, enable execute access to this module by entering chmod +x CPxxxxxx.scexe, where CPxxxxxx.scexe represents the downloaded file.

  4. Execute the Smart Component by entering a command similar to the following: ./CPxxxxxx.scexe --target <ip_address> --user <username> --passwd <password>

  5. Follow onscreen instructions.

NOTE:
  • Use the -e or -f option when flashing a device, even if it is up to date.

  • Use the -g option when downgrading.

  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command ./CPxxxxxx.scexe or ./CPxxxxxx.scexe -h.

  • If the user name or password contains an exclamation mark (!), enclose the string in single quotes or enter a backslash (\) before the exclamation point. For example, ’!manage’ or \!manage

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPD9

Last Recommended or Critical Version:
      HPD5

Previous Version of Firmware:
      HPD5

Firmware Dependency:
     None

Enhancements/New Features:
     This firmware improves the hard drive servo control which reduces the number of positioning errors.

Problems Fixed:
     
   Resolved an issue with 01/5D/32 error in SMART log.  Read-Write Error Recovery issue may cause HDD to time-out.  Full recovery from this error can take several seconds.

Known Issues:
     None

Failure Considerations:

  1. Single ported drive will not be flashed if the owner controller of that drive is not accessible through network.
  2. Drives will not be flashed if the drive is in a virtual disk which is being initialized, expanded, reconstructed, verified, or scrubbed.
  3. Flash operation on any pending disks will be aborted if the currently flashed drive is in LEFTOVR state or the virtual disk containing this disk is found to be in offline or critical state. If this does occur, the vdisk can be restored to online status by changing the drive status from leftover to available and then adding the drive to the vdisk as a spare. If a global spare drive was available, it will have been used to restore the vdisk to online status.

Supported Devices and Features:
Firmware on the listed drives can be updated when attached to any HP P2000 G3 or MSA2000 G2 array controller enclosure.


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