Guidance needed on VC 3.51 Firware upgarde package issue.

Dear All,

 

We are planning to upgrade the Virtual connect firmware from 3.30 to 3.51. As a pre-request, I ran the vcsu -a packageinfo and vcsu -a report and both commands got failed, please check the below output.

 

I have checked the md5sum of file in server and compared the value with HP VC firmware download URL on installation instruction and its same, please see the below details.

To ensure the integrity of your download, HP recommends verifying your results with this MD5 Checksum value:

[root@sfrmdban206 VCS-2012-02-09]# vcsu -a packageinfo -l /home/chandve/VCS-2012-02-09/vcfwall351.bin

Could someone please guide me,  does the package has any issue, or am I doing anything wrong.

 

Still i don't start the upgarde because of the above error message i see in the package is it advisable to start the upgrade???

 

Thanks

Veera.

You might try another download of the VCSU 1.6

As it looks to be a parsing error, it may be that the corruption is within the utility.
