This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the hard drive models DG072BB975 (each of 72GB 10K SAS) and DG146BB976 (each of 146GB 10K SAS) in HP P2000 G3 MSA and MSA2000 G2 configurations.

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-1d3cfa7da38c4b4b9411db8350&prodNameId=4310834&swEnvOID=1005&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:

  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

       Firmware Flash Component for Linux - HP P2000/MSA2000 072GB,146GB 10K SAS SFF Hard Drive (DG072BB975 and DG146BB976)

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPDF

Previous Version of Firmware:
      HPDE

Enhancements/New Features:
     None

Problems Fixed:
This firmware prevents the possibility that a HDD will cease to function when the drive is used in a Dual Domain or Dual Path Fail-over environment and communication to one path is suddenly lost.  If this issue is encountered while running firmware version HPDE or earlier, upgrade to firmware version HPDF. Do not replace the drive.

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 P2000 G3 or MSA2000 G2 array controller enclosure.


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