Cannot install Firmware for HP EF0600FARNA harddisk

Hello,

 

i have a server proliant ml350 g6 with hp array 410i.

the smh reports an error with the firmware of my harddisk.

 

disk1: HP EF0600FARNA Firmware: HPD2

disk2: HP EF0600FATFF Firmware: HPD2

 

When I try this firmware:

RECOMMENDED * Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - EF0300FARMU, EF0450FARMV, EF0600FARNA drives

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=MTX_31469220e6194408b6b6d713d6

 

error:

The software will not be installed on this system because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system.  
There were no devices found that could be loaded with the ROM Image.

 

What can I do, because I thing that this is the correct software?

is the problem from the fact, that i have two different types of harddisk?

 

greetings dutch

Hello,

 

does the P410i Smart Array Controller has a cache module installed? Online HDD firmware upgrade is only supported if a

 

cache module is present. What's the current firmware version on the P410i?

 

Best regards, Joern.

If you boot the server, you will see the smart array message during POST. If in this line is something like (256MB - see example; 1GB cache module) this is the indicator for the cache module. You can see this also from ACU.

For an offline update just boot the SPP - www.hp.com/go/spp

 


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
