EVA firmware

Hi all,
was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to downgrade my hsv110 controllers from 400 to 311 i have one set that is already at 311 but i havent been able to find anything saying if i can use one of the v311 controllers to downgrade the v400. I know i can use the v400 controllers to update but need to know if it will work the other way around. I dont want to try it and have 2 sets of controllers that are the wrong version.
any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks

Re: EVA firmware

Hi,
3110 is the latest active/passive
4100 is the lastes active/active
and
downgrading while retaining existing data from vcs 4.100 to any earlier version of 3.xxx is not supported. Downgrade is only possible to an unitialized storage system...

Re: EVA firmware

but if you have the EVA allready on the active/active firmware why do you want to downgrade it to the active/passive, which is less powerfull?
Perhaps it would be much better to upgrade both controllers to the 4.100 firmware version

here is the upgrade guide:

VCS 4.100 download:

Re: EVA firmware

Thank you very much for the help on this the link for 3.110 worked perfect!!
I'm building these systems for someone and they requested this version specificly. It didnt make much sense to me either but whatever makes them happy i guess.
Thanks again

Re: EVA firmware

Hi,

Glad to help. Personally I'd still stick with VCS 3.110 on the EVA5000, unless you really must go to an Active/Active configuration...

Cheers,

Rob
