XCS and VCS are not available as downloads. You need to get them directly from HP.

Re: XCS 5.031 Downoad.

You can download it here:

XCS 5.031 for EVA4/6000
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software6/COL13230/co-36838-1

for the EVA8000
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software6/COL13231/co-36839-1

The associated disk FW is here
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software6/COL13305/co-37091-1

Be careful and read the respective release notes and so on upfront!!

Re: XCS 5.031 Downoad.

Do not think so!
It should be accessible for everybody.
If you go up the tree you will find the readme where it says:

SOFTWARE LIBRARY AREA

Welcome to the Hewlett-Packard Software Library (softlib)directory.

This directory on ftp.hp.com contains software (drivers, bios, firmware, patches, etc) for select HP products.

The software on this ftp server is best accessed via

HP's web site: www.hp.com

The location of specific software on this ftp server may change frequently in correlation with software revisions.

Re: XCS 5.031 Downoad.

Thank you Peter for your reply.

I believe it is beneficial to everybody
to have these products updated.

Regarding the disk firmware,
Do you still require a controller resync
prior to the update ?

(use to be done from fieldservice for drivefw_off_3028.sss)

Best regards,
Farid

Re: XCS 5.031 Downoad.

I am not sure, but reading the XCS5.031 update SW guide does not say so!
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00565073/c00565073.pdf

I will try to find out.

Re: XCS 5.031 Downoad.

I talked to an expert of HP service.
He says it is still required, but he has never done it!!
Reason: Diskfirmware updates are always done with VCS or XCS upgrades. During a VCS or XCS upgrade you will always do a resynch and therefor do not need another one for the disk FW update!
