HP09 f/w upgrade for A6194A/Seagate ST373307FC in VA7400

I located the firmware for these drives as described in http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=946774

and downloaded and extracted PF_DSEAFCHP0609.frm. The cksum of this file agrees with the release notes.

I'm on HPUX 11.11, using CommandView 1.09.02 and looking at the VA7400 containing these drives. I selected the .frm file for download but when I choose "Start Download" it responds with:

bad firmware image in file

The VA7400 has f/w HP19.

Quite a few of the 15 drives are at f/w HP00 so I figure this is a good pm step before putting the array into production. I've done everything right, haven't I? If so, what gives?

thanks.

That links to HP03 firmware. I'm looking for HP09. I know that HP09 exists and can be loaded because some of the drives in the array are at HP09.

Bottom line, I'd like to have them all at the same level.

Never mind! I see that HP03 is the latest version for ST373307FC. I hadn't noticed that some of the drives in the array are ST373405FC and those are at HP08 or HP09.

So, thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction.
