Re: Update Firmware for VA7100

hi,

I guess this activity has to be done by a HP CE. It requires the updation of your command view SDM software. and i feel you can update the firmware using the launcher utility. I haven't done one till now or seen someone doing it.

Re: Update Firmware for VA7100

Nguyen,

This should be performed by HP. You will need to update the Command View SDM software, patches (if needed), and make sure you have a backup of all data on the array. HP will have a firmware file for both the controllers and the battery charging circuit. Both should be upgraded depending on their current level. The upgrades are indeed performed through the Command View GUI or can be performed through the VFP (Virtual Front Panel).

Hope this helps,

Dave

Re: Update Firmware for VA7100

I have already updated it by myself. My company did not buy support service from HP.
When i was updating, i suddenly think that how to recover Firwares if updating is fail.
