VA7400 LCC & Disk firmware upgrade issues.

Hi,

I have a VA7400 with three DS2405 JBOD's attached. I have upgraded the VA firmware from HP19 to HP22 successfully but when upgrading both LCC & disk firmware the upgrade aborts with the following error.

Failed pass-thru write buffer Aborting.

Help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: VA7400 LCC & Disk firmware upgrade issues.

Do you have the install instruction for the firmware? AFAIR there are some steps to break locks, if exists. Did you do this?

I think I remember there were also 2 different kinds of LCCs used (with different firmware) - what model do you have? What FW version?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Torsten,

Yes I have the firmware guide & armmgr -b all locks are disabled.

The JBOD link controller card is A6255A currently at HP04 new firmware HP05.

I get the same error when trying to upgrade disk FW.

Somehow I think I saw this before, but I cannot remember ...


What CV SDM version do you use on what kind of OS?

Hope this helps!

Re: VA7400 LCC & Disk firmware upgrade issues.


I am running Command view version
1.09.02-0191-060113 with Windows 2003 server.

Also the VA is fabric attached if this makes any difference.
