The firmware available in this download is specifically packaged for flashing the SFF hard drive models MM1000FBFVR (1TB 7K 6G SAS) and MM0500FBFVQ (500GB 7K 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:

53cd7d02b1ef01fc7df5a72a9c4db2c3 HP_MM0500FBFVQ_HPD5.fla
94f0b927ad39739b12d5670c288566c5 HP_MM1000FBFVR_HPD5.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.
