Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

Hello Dmitry,

surly you mean XCS 6.100. AFAIK is it not available by the software depot, because there are newer version online. You can download XCS 6.200 and 6.220 by software depot:

http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63122

Why can't you upgrade to 6.200 or 6.220?

Best regards,
Patrick

Patrik, I have EVA8000 with Command View EVA 6.0, which supports XCS 6.10, but not XCS 6.20 and later.
Since CV EVA 8.0 and later requires a new licensing rule and I will must buy new unlim licens, but it is very expensive.

Sorry for my English.

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

Hi,
(XCS 6110 is currently the minimum supported.
it should be good for you, its only the latest revision of 6100):

the XCS6100 should be here:

the pain is one part of the reality

The licensing rules haven't changed. If you are running an EVA on any version of XCS/CV EVA with more disk space than you have the licenses for, then you're not "legal".

What has changed is that version 7 and later of CV EVA, _enforce_ the licensing rule.

Cheers,

Rob

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

Hi,

it is sufficient if you have an EVA without a valid support contract to need new licenses. If he has buyed a unlimited license, but no valid support, he must buy now a new unlimited to upgrade CV.

Yes, Patric, but EVA placed in Tajikistan country, and this country not supported by HP, but we bought the EVA 2.5 years ago, and want upgrade firmware to 6.10. It not violation of the license agreement.

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

IBaltay, thanks, but no... I can not find need firmware on this URL, sorry.
PS: XCS v6.11 is very problematic, it is better not to use this firmware.

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

Hi,

AFAIK is 6.100 and 6.110 the same release, but 6.100 was for EVAx000 and 6.110 for EVAx100 storages.

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

Patrik, may be, may be... but I had big problems with firmware 6.11 on eva8100 in use as backend for failower cluster Win2003.
The problem was solved when I upgrade the firmware from 6.11 to 6.20.
Bat I need a firmware 6.10, for controllers EVA8000-A, now. Not 6.2 and later, and only 6.10

Re: search for firmware xcs v6.10

XCS 6100/6110 will be out of support after August 31th, so you should better plan to upgrade to 6220.

XCS 6110 has never been available as is only came with the EVAs x100 and was not needed on the previous models.

XCS 6100 is here:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software8/COL19049/co-49348-1/XCS6100.zip

XCS 6220 is here:

http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63122

You need an updated version of Command View for XCS 6220.
