This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the 6G SAS LFF hard drive models ST1000NM0001(1TB), ST2000NM0001(2TB) in HP MSA 2040, P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 configurations.

  1.  Improvement for performance at low levels of RV in cabinets (RV below 5 rad/s2).
  2.  Increase ramp load routine A2D sample magnitude to insure a full release at low temperatures from the head/suspension assembly protective
  3.  mechanical latch (2TB only).

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 MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 storage system

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 2040/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 Modular Storage Array Family reference guide.

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

Notes:

Failure Considerations:

  1. Single ported drive will not be flashed if the owner controller of that drive is not accessible through network.
  2. Flash operation on any pending disks will be aborted if the currently flashed drive is in LEFTOVR state 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 MSA 2040, P2000 G3 or MSA2000 array controller enclosure.


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


Fixed Issues :

  1. Drive Hang Condition on Second Port When First Port Loses Connection.
  2. Masked Unused Interrupt - Masked the presently unused "New primitive received" interrupt off for all configs.
  3. SAS Drives Encounter Assert failures.
  4. DOS Issue When Scanning Scan Units Entirely Mapped Out Due to Defects.
  5. Heavy Near Sequential Read/Write Workload With Head of Queue Causes Miscompare.

Version:0002 (B) (16 Jan 2015)
Fixes

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

Upgrade to HDD firmware 0002 (B) is not necessary if HDDs are currently running 0002 firmware.


Following issues were fixed in the firmware version 0002 :

  • Drive hang condition occurred on second port when first port lost connection.
  • An unused “new primitive received” interrupt was masked off for all configurations.
  • SAS drives encountered assert failures. 
  • DOS issue caused scanned units to be entirely mapped out due to defects.
  • Heavy “near sequential read/write workload with head of queue” caused mis-compares.
Enhancements

Smart Component was updated to support HP MSA 1040 storage arrays.

Following enhancements were done in firmware version 0002

  • Improvement for performance at low levels of RV in cabinets (RV below 5rad/S2  ).
  • Increase “ramp load routine A2D sample magnitude” to insure a full release at low temperatures from the head/suspension assembly protective mechanical latch (2TB only).
