Firmware for HP 10Gbe Pass-thru!!!!!!

Nick needed to upgrade some Pass-Thru module firmware:




Hi Folks,


Can anyone help me obtain the file   10GPTHRU-   I need to help customer upgrade older pass-thru firmware and every time I try to download file, it seems to just open up with all the jibberish of the bin file






Some people replied to Nick:




Eirik answered:

Since it’s a .bin file and not zipped I would reccomend rightclicking and “save as”, really distributing files in bin can be troublesome. Otherwise, is this Pass-Thru firmware not included in the OA-firmware like all other Pass-Thru modules?


Steven had some info:

I don’t believe the FW is included in the OA distribution, based on a recent upgrade I did which had a single 10GbE PTM installed.   I’ve included part of the output listing what was found minus the full count of fans…

You have to use a tftp server to load the pass-thru firmware.  See the manual  page 14.  Not the simplest procedure but it does work.  I have had problems downloading ftp via the HP PC COE build of IE, but Chrome seems to work.


Attached is the .bin file I used earlier today…




Any other suggestions or comments?
