disk firmware question

We have an MSA 30 disk bay with 289243-001 (72GB drives); the server is a rx2620 and it uses a Smart Array 6402 controller. I received a notice to check the disk firmware as part of critical update notices. I determined that the disks and controller meet the criteria, but I can't determine what fw is on the drives since we created a logical volume. Is there any way to determine what firmware is on the drives?

Re: disk firmware question

Shalom,

You should be able to determine this by using ACU, array configuration utility for you OS. You connect via a browser and drill in for details.

The Smart Array 6402 controller does not connect to or have anything to do with the MSA-30

You can also connect to the MSA-30 via a console serial connection and use utilities to determine the information you want.

Re: disk firmware question

I'm using hpux and don't think there is a utility for the SA6402. I'll try consoling to the MSA device itself.
