Firmware for Smart Array P400

We are currently at 1.18 on our Smart Array P400 controller. Is there a new version of firmware for this controller?

If your OS is Win2003 then this is the page you may check this out:
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/storage/us/locate/69_6255.html

Numbers there are not similar to what you said though:
"current version
HPD7 A
previous version
HPD6 A"

That firmware looks like firmware for the SAS Drives, is that correct?

Re: Firmware for Smart Array P400

Good morning,

I've got a problem with storage controller P400 (Firmware 2.08) with DL580 G4 and DL380 G5. After the creation of a logical Volume, I was not able to create partitions with GDISK command (error messages) before install Windows 2003 with unattend file. I tried FDISK command but nothing changed. I had to downgrade Firmware version to 1.18. Then, creation and format of partitions was possible.
Why? Anybody ever had this? Is there an other solution?

I think the date of firmware version are stranges:
1.18 1 feb 2007
2.08 2 feb 2007 (only one day...)

The 1.18 version doesn't appear on previous FirmwareUpdate CD. I found it only with the last specifications for my servers.

Am i beeing paranoïd?...;o)

We are exploring the use of aefdisk also as a workaround until the new BIOS update.
