HP Firmware CD 8.20 ...8.70 hang on discovery in check with CISCO 3020, LPe1105 and SAN connection

At three different sites I experienced problems with the HP Firmware CD's 8.20 till 8.70 when trying to upgrade the firmware of BL460c G1, G5, G6. BL480c .. BL680c servers when following devices were installed:

- More than 2 CISCO 3020 LAN switches.

- LPe1105 HBA in server

- A SAN connection to EVA or MSA2000

The firmware CD hangs at discovery.

It worked fine with HP Firmware CD 9.0

On the cases the Firmware CD hangs the Blade firmware deployment tool runs but only partly upgrades components (usually only the iLO2 is upgraded).

We were able to simulate it in our lab but did not have time yet to test all situations.

Attached doc provides workarounds I used to upgrade those sites.
