Naming of 3PAR patches

Hi,

I'm new in 3PAR and I want to know the differences in naming of patches.

Which is the difference between 3.2.2 patches GA, EGA, MU1, MU2 ?

Specifically, what is mean GA, EGA, MU ?

What is mean P", for example "P07" ?

Which is tailored for an 3PAR 7400c ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Naming of 3PAR patches

About the names

GA gerneral availibility

MU maintenance update

EMU enhanced maintenance update

P patch

 

all are numbered, like P007 (patch 007), EMU1, etc ...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Naming of 3PAR patches

There is always a number of a version

example:

InformOS

3.2.2

+ a build number

example:

3.2.2.290

Some versions are classified as a major or minor step, called GA, MU, EMU, etc...

 

Example:

 

3.2.2.290 is known as 3.2.2GA

3.2.2.390 is known as 3.2.2MU2

3.2.2.612 is known as 3.2.2MU4

3.2.2.709 is known as 3.2.2MU6

 

there are patches for each of this versions

example:

3.2.2.725 is 3.2.2MU6+P99

 

run "showversion" or "showversion -a -b" on your 3PAR to get your version.

 

More or less the same applies to the Service Processor (SP).


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
