P2000G2 disk firmware update problem

Hello

I have a MSA2324fc (G2) filled with 24 300GB disks. It is connected to a fiber switch, and is used only to vmware.

Now I am trying to update the firmware on the disks. Controller-firmwareupdate went smooth as silk(Via HP P2000 firmware update tool).

 

When I try to update the disks via webmanagement(the controller) I get the error: Not Capable of updating the disk at enclosure =1, slot=1. ***Firmware update failed***

I tried using both an .frm and an .scexe, nothing works.

 

Please, can anybody tell me what to do?

To disable the email notification:

Tools , Email Notification , Notification level: none

Sure you used the correct file???

Disabling email will not solve this ;-)

Hope this helps!

Re: P2000G2 disk firmware update problem

There are "critical" updates for some SAS drives available, but we still don't know the disk drive in question in this thread ...

 

Please tell the disk model name!

 

 

This example is for P4000, but there are similar advisories for all systems using SAS disks:
