C7000 - Virtual Connect 4Gb FC Firmware upgrade

I used vcutil to upgrade the firmware on my HP Virtual Connect 4Gb FC module, from 1.40 to 1.41

The CLI reports 1.41:

->show firmware
=====================================================================
ID Enclosure Bay Type Firmware Version Status
=====================================================================
enc0:1 USE919M4N0 1 VC-ENET 3.10 2010-09-03T06:16:45Z OK
enc0:2 USE919M4N0 2 VC-ENET 3.10 2010-09-03T06:16:45Z OK
enc0:3 USE919M4N0 3 VC-FC 1.41 7.12.4.11 OK
enc0:4 USE919M4N0 4 VC-FC 1.41 7.12.4.11 OK

but the GUI reports it is still on version 1.40.

Which is correct?

Anthony,

just fyi

i went thru the same kind of VC FWupgrade and the GUI in the OA shows the correct versions after the update.
To me your VC CLI is correct.

I had a GUI open to the OA open during the VC FW upgrade from 3.01 to 3.10 (VC Ethernet) and 1.40 to 1.41 (VC SAN).


My OA is on FW V3.11, not sure if this makes a difference or not. I did not had to log out/login again to the OA GUI to see the newer VC FW versions, it updated automatically. The VC GUI also shows the right versions.




The following modules will be updated:

Re: C7000 - Virtual Connect 4Gb FC Firmware upgrade

Did the same upgrade on another enclosure and OA GUI also shows properly the new versions. OA here was also V3.10

Used V1.50 of the VC utility in previous upgrade and now i used V1.51, all went well apparently.

Try to log off from your OA GUI session, clear cache eventually and log on again.
But your update looks fine to me.

I logged off from OA, no change. I cleared cache, no change.

However, I seem to have fixed the issue by forcing a active-to-standby OA switch. Now, OA shows 1.41 for FC firmware.
