What is the proper procedure for upgrading the firmware on disks in a MA8000 that is attached to an HSG80?

The only option you have here is to remove the Disks from the hsg80 config and its enclosures place in a standard HP/Compaq server and run the upgrade on disks using the maintenace CD - you cannot upgrade the firmware in the enviromenet of a HSG80

There is a utility residing on the HSG80 called HSUTIL which can be used to load new HDD firmware onto attached disk drives.
