This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for the 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 MSA 2040, P2000 G3 and MSA2000 G2 storage arrays.

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 HP 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 Array reference guide.All firmware flash progress messages are logged to /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log.

IMPORTANT: Please review the failure considerations above before flashing hard drives in HP MSA 2040/P2000/MSA2000 configurations.


To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

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

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 (13 Dec 2013)
Fixes

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


  • After long-term use, the drive may develop a mechanical condition preventing the heads from fully unloading onto the ramp, potentially causing data loss or mechanical damage after power loss or power cycle. This firmware prevents this condition.

Version:HPD5 (10 Apr 2012)
Fixes

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


Added support for EVA.


Version:HPD3 (6 Dec 2011)
Fixes

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


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.
