HP Surestore FC60 Latest Firmware Release

HI all ,

Kindly if someone can help me for the below query ..!

What is the latest firmware release/version available for FC60 Disk Array model .

I am told by the Advanced Guide of FC60 that RAID 0 can be supported on FC60 but with HP08 Firware version . Can I know from where can I get this firmware downloaded as I am unable to find this in ITRC Firmware list .

Kindly suggest me with solutions to use RAID 0 on FC60 ....!

Awaiting your replies .....!

Thanks in advance .

Naveen Shetty .

FC60 HP08 and HP09 firmware have been withdrawn due to possible data problems. HP03 is the only current supported version of firmware.

Re: HP Surestore FC60 Latest Firmware Release

The latest firmware released is HP08 but the recommended firmware level at this moment is HP03.

RAID 0 will be supported with a new microcode of FC60 in the near future but not sure for time frame.
And I'm not sure that HP08 will make FC60 possible to create RAID 0.

At any rate, it looks like that we don't have any external source for the firmware, HP08.

I have two FC60 in one client installation. As I know HP08 have problem of data corruption on RAID 0. That's why HP is recomending HP03.

Re: HP Surestore FC60 Latest Firmware Release

O.k. So here I've just bought and installed an FC60/SC10 array, and now I find that the documentation is incorrect and it cannot be used for RAID 0 after all. Is there some way that I can address the disks and use LVM striping? Admittedly this isn't nearly as good a solution, but I am curious.
TIA,
