This Linux Smart Component contains a firmware update for SFF hard drive models EH0300JEDHC (300GB 12G SAS 15K), EH0450JEDHD (450GB 12G SAS 15K) and EH0600JEDHE (600GB 12G SAS 15K) in HP MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.

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: 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 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.

NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 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 2000 Family Reference Guide. All firmware flash progress messages are logged to /var/cpq/MSA2000_IP.log and flashing summary is logged to /var/cpq/Component.log.

IMPORTANT: Please refer to the best practices document for special considerations regarding the pre-install conditions for flashing hard drives in HP MSA 1040/2040 and P2000 G3 Storage Arrays.

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


Installation:

Installation instructions using Smart Component:

  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 / --reflash or -f / --force option when flashing a device, even if it is up to date.
  • Use the -g / --downgrade option when downgrading.
  • For details on supported command options, see the online help by executing the command ./CPxxxxxx.scexe or ./CPxxxxxx.scexe -h / --help.
  • 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
