3PAR OS Patches/Updates

I have multiple 3PAR arrays at my site but to HP, my site is dark because we are a government site. HPE cannot remotely access my arrays. As such, the responsibility for updating the 3PAR OS and Service Processor. Unfortunately, we've fallen behind.

Do people generally update their own 3PAR OS? Are you supposed to open a service call prior to attempting an update? I don't really find any documentation that walks you through the process.

Does anyone have their own personal process that they follow for an update? I'd really like to get these arrays updated as soon as possible.

Thanks, Joe

Re: 3PAR OS Patches/Updates

HPE provide a special onsite update service for 3PAR systems like yours, ask them.

Hope this helps!

Re: 3PAR OS Patches/Updates

Yeah. We're aware of the onsite update service. Despite paying pretty hefty maintnenance fees for support to HPE, you still need to pay extra for this on-site service, which my customer isn't excited to pay for.

I was just wondering if anyone does these updates on their own and what their experiences are.

Regards,

Joe

Re: 3PAR OS Patches/Updates

As a starting point you could read this and the following pages:

https://3pardude.com/2014/09/29/3par-os-upgrade-3-1-3-part-1-pre-upgrade-planning/

 

IMHO the big challenge is to know what patches you need to install before and after the OS upgrade ...
