Deliverable Name:
    Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - EG0300FBDBR, EG0450FBDBT and EG0600FBDBU drives

Release Version and/or Date:
      HPD7

Last Recommended or Critical Version:
      HPD7

Previous Version of Firmware:
      HPD6

Firmware Dependency:
     None

Enhancements/New Features:

  • Added support for the HP Smart Array B320i RAID controller and the HP Smart Array B120i SATA RAID controller.

Problems Fixed: 

  • Firmware version HPD7 prevents an initialization handshake issue that could result in the controller not recognizing that the drive is installed. This results in the drive being reported as bad or missing.
  • Firmware version HPD7 corrects a rare issue found in previous versions of the hard disk firmware. If the WRITE CACHE is Enabled on the hard drive, the drive WRITE CACHE can be partially over written with older data. This rare situation results in unexpected data being written to the drive and being returned on subsequent READs.   

Known Issues:
     
None

Version:HPDA(B) (10 May 2013)
Fixes

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

  • Online firmware flashing of drives attached to an HP Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or an HP ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported. Only offline firmware flashing of drives is supported for these configurations.
  • Online drive firmware update available for Smart Array Controllers configured in systems running supported Linux, Microsoft Windows, and VMware environments. All other OSes would require an offline update using the SPP and HP SUM.
  • Customers who already installed firmware version HPDA do not need to update to HPDA(B).

Firmware Dependency:

  • Minimum firmware required - HPD7. HPDA drive firmware will fail when downgrading to versions below HPD7.
Problems Fixed:
  • This firmware corrects a possible condition in which stale data might be written to the disk.  This results in unexpected data being returned in subsequent requests.  This data issue has been duplicated in laboratory firmware stress tests.

Version:HPD9 (19 Feb 2013)
Fixes

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

  • Online firmware flashing of drives attached to an HP Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or an HP ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported. Only offline firmware flashing of drives is supported for these configurations.
  • Online drive firmware update available for Smart Array Controllers configured in systems running supported Linux, Microsoft Windows, and VMware environments. All other OSes would require an offline update using the SPP and HP SUM.

Problems Fixed:

  • This firmware corrects a condition seen on HP Gen8 smart carriers where drives used as Hot Spares continuously indicate drive activity, when the drive is actually in Hot Spare standby mode.

Version:HPD7 (B) (4 Sep 2012)
Fixes

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

  • Customers who already installed firmware version HPD7 do not need to update to HPD7(B).

Version:HPD6 (20 Jul 2011)
Fixes

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


Problems Fixed:

This firmware prevents the following:

  • Possible HDD hang when the drive is used in a dual domain or dual path fail-over environment and communication to one path is suddenly lost
  • Over-writing data written via the fail over port when data is written via a port performing interface recovery (discovery)
  • A situation where the drive reports self test in progress erroneously after self test was interrupted by a power cycle or hot plug
