Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

Hello,

 

I need to update an EVA4400 (XCS, CV EVA, and firmware disk) with CV EVA on WOCP (ABM).

 

I have already updated XCS, CV EVA and firmware disk on EVA storage, but on SBM (CV EVA on Windows Server).

 

There is an upgrade path for CV EVA on windows server, but not for the ABM.

 

Someone can help me to find the documentations for updating an EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP ?

 

Thanks a lot.

 

David

Re: Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

Just use the ABM package from the command view kit and use the firmware update feature on the web page of the module.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Could you please explain your question?

Do you want to update XCS and disks from the management module?

Hope this helps!

Re: Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

I wille first update CV EVA on the WOCP, with the ABM file on the kit.

 

After i will update the XCS through the new version of  CV EVA, the CV EVA is excecuted via the link on the WOCP.

 

After the XCS, i will update the firmware disk, again through the CV EVA GUI (link from WOCP)

 

Best Regards  

Torsten.

Re: Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

With current firmware you can also update the disks via WOCP.

XCS update will work. Depending on the running version you may need to update in several steps!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

Better upgrade the WOCP directly to 10.3, XCS to 10001000, then to 11200000

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Updating EVA4400 with CV EVA on WOCP.

The customer use old servers (OPEN VMS and TRUE64) on production.

 

HP Support prefer to install only the XCS 11001100.

 

So i prefer to install 10.1 cv eva (Maybe CV EVA 10.3 it's a better solution).

 

I can updrage the xcs 10001000 to 11001100 directly.

 

And after update the firmware disks.

 

I think it's a good idea to updrade directly on CV EVA 10.3 ?

 

Thanks.
