how many times for an MSA 2012FC firmware update ?

Hi everyone, to begin, sorry for my bad english ^_^

I've got an MSA 2012 fc 2 controllers, full with 8 SATA disk (1TB), 3 SATA disk (750 BG) and 13 SAS disk (300 GB)

I've got upgrade this MSA with an enclosure and 5 disk and do a full bios update of it but I don't find exactly how many times it takes.

does anyone did a full update of an MSA and can tell me how many time the update takes ?

thanks in advance

Hi Poyer,

if you are upgrading the entire MSA then it mainly depends on how many drives you have...
you can take a avarge of 3-5 mins /drive
so
Number 0f drives X 5 mins = drive fw upgrade.
one Controller will hardly take less than 10 mins.and the FW then will be cloned to the other controller.

hi, thank you for responding, that's what I see on another topics, so to upgrade my MSA I calculated that it would take over 2h45

thanks
