DL140 G3 + DF072ABAA8 x2 in RAID 1


i`m using FreeBSD on this server and it`s sometimes failure on storage. After rebooting, RAID (LSI LOGIC) seems to be failure. If i turn off server and then turn on, its starting normally.

I found this issue:

Disk have firmware HPD3,so i need to upgrade it.

But Firmware CD not running on DL140G3 and its require SmartArray P600.

How can i do this?!

I cannot find how to update them in a 100-series proliant and FreeBSD (whis is not a supported OS)
There are packages for Windows and Linux:



Maybe you can put the drives in another server and update firmware there.

Re: DL140 G3 + DF072ABAA8 x2 in RAID 1

Yes, i found it too..

And i don`t understand:
This disk drive component requires Smart Array P600 firmware version 1.50 or later available at http://www.hp.com/support/proliantstorage. " in the installation section.

Is it means, that i need P600 Smart Array Controller to upgrade firmware?

I trying to find any SAS controller now...And hope this is issue for me..

So... i found 2 SAS/SATA controllers, takes DF072ABAA8 and connect to it. Windows found HDD,all seems to be ok, but utility says: "required hardware is not present in the system or software/firmware doesn`t apply to this system".

Its make me sad :(
Does firmware upgrade utilites for DF072ABAA8 really need Smart Array P600 controller ???? And could be upgraded only on this controller?

I don`t want to buy it!! And i don`t have DL360 ,365 servers, where this controller can be exist.

So, its look like one way for me - take it to service support?
