Hi!

On HP's driver/downloads page you need to search for VLS6109 or 6105.

That will get you here:

Last EBS matrix that the VLS6100 is in is April 2009.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ebs/pdf/EBSMatrix-0409.pdf

This says the firmware to use is the 2.3.0 firmware.

If I went to the VLS6200 and there found the 2.3.0 and went to release notes it says that the VLS6100 is not supported with this firmware.

I tried to find another place where the 2.3.0 was listed and listed as supported for the VLS6100 - but I could not.

I wonder if 2.3.0 not advised to run on the VLS6100 anymore?

This advisory might hint that that is the case:
