The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the SFF hard drive models EG0900FBLSK (900GB 10K 6G SAS), EG0600FBLSH (600GB 10K 6G SAS) , EG0450FBLSF (450GB 10K 6G SAS) and EG0300FBLSE (300GB 10K 6G SAS) when configured in HP 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.

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, HP recommends verifying your results with the following MD5 Checksum values:

b24d8beb52f16f4ce15c0091c5fc66de HP_EG0600FBLSH_HPD3.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 package in a temporary directory.
  2. Locate the firmware file in the extracted folder.
  3. Stop I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.
  4. 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.
  5. Select the drives to update.
  6. Click Browse and select the firmware file to install.
  7. Click Install Disk Firmware File. Wait for progress messages to specify that the update is complete.
  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.
Installation instructions using FTP
  1. Place the downloaded firmware package in a temporary directory.

  2. Locate the firmware file in the extracted folder.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Stop all I/O to vdisks before starting the firmware update.

  6. 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. To update a specific drive, enter: put <firmware-file> disk:enclosure-ID>:slot-number flash.

  7. If needed, repeat these steps to load the firmware on additional drives.

  8. Quit the FTP session.

  9. In the SMU display, verify that the proper firmware version appears for each module.

  10. 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.

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


Important:
CAUTION: Updating firmware on drives in a virtual disk causes the drives to be temporarily inaccessible and increases the risk of data loss

IMPORTANT: Drive upgrades are an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade.

Enhancements/New Features:
     None

Problems Fixed:
   
     This firmware prevents the following:

  • Firmware version HPD3 corrects an issue which causes the drive to reset internally when a link is lost due to communication error.  If this issue occurs, it causes aborted commands, which are typically recovered by system error recovery but causes reset entries in the drive error logs and may momentarily slow performance.

Known Issues:
     None


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

Version:HPD8 (23 Jun 2015)
Fixes

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


Following fix is added in HPD8 :

  • Hard disk drive firmware HPD8 resolves the issue where HP ProLiant servers would power down due a hard drive overtemp condition that was falsely reported.

Version:HPD7 (14 Aug 2013)
Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.


  • After long term use of the disk, a rare condition might occur following a power cycle where the drive heads may land on areas of the disk containing data, which could potentially cause data loss or mechanical damage.
  • This firmware prevents a rare condition that may occur during a WRITE SAME command sequence that can result in incorrect data being written to the hard drive.

Version:HPD5 (10 Apr 2012)
Fixes

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