Downgrader the firmware in a EVA3000 disk

Hello everyone, I have an old EVA3000 and I will put new disks, the case is that almost certainly would not have the same firmware of the disks disk group where I have to add.

You could indicate as I download the firmware of the new disks at the same level as it is.

Thanks

I would prefer to upgrade all the other disks ... maybe you miss important fixes otherwise.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Downgrader the firmware in a EVA3000 disk

Hello Torsten, it is not that exactly what I want, I would not touch these production records if a problem arises.

Is it possible option I comment?

Re: Downgrader the firmware in a EVA3000 disk

There's no problem in having disks with different firmware versions, as long as they have the minimum version for the firmware on the EVA.

Also remember that currently the only supported firmware for an EVA3000 is 3.110 or 4.100.

Re: Downgrader the firmware in a EVA3000 disk

Hello again, the procedure would be:

1. insert new disks
2. Do not add the Disk Group
3. the existing firmware downgrader
4. Add the disk group

Is that correct?

THANK YOU!
Torsten.

See vcespon's post - no need to downgrade anything.

Hope this helps!
