VC Flex 10 FW Upgrade


VC Flex 10 FW Upgrade

I want to upgrade my new C7000 Enclosure with 2 Flex 10 Enet Module and 2 FC Switch 16/8 Module. The OA have FW 3.10 and the VC Module have 2.32. When I beginn the Update the FW from the VC Flex 10 Module to 3.01 the message "The file is too big to handle".

Re: VC Flex 10 FW Upgrade


I experienced the same problem while trying to update our Flex-10 modules to VCM 3.01.

Starting from 2.32 I did the update to 2.33, but the error wasn't gone.

Finally did the update with the "HP BladeSystem c-Class Virtual Connect Support Utility". Worked perfectly.

Since running VCM 3.01 there seems no possibility to update firmware over the web interface. The link "Firmware Management" in the navigation pane is gone.

VC 3.01 is a HUGE step back in functionality and security. I have no idea why HP thought the changes would make customers happier. The only improvement in a faster interface. Everything else took two steps back.
