looking for firmware for smart-2DH controllers

I am trying to update some smart-2DH array controllers. They are currently running version 4.06
I tried the online update, but I am told I need to be at 4.4 or over to update to 4.6

Any ideas where I can find the older versions

Also appreciated, will I need to update in steps or can I go straight to 4.6 ?

Simon:

Have you tried the firmware Update CD?

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/subscription/ssdownloads.asp

Also, what OS are you running? and What server model?

Re: looking for firmware for smart-2DH controllers

Hi

I am using a Prolient 3000R with the 266Mhz processors.

When I use the CD, I cannot find any file on there that works with this version of card.

This may be complicatied by the onboard VGA not being up to starting the Linux that comes on the CD. Do I miss anything not being able to start the GUI on the CD ?

Thanks

Hi Simon,

Here is the link to the Legacy Controller upgrades file. This upgrade process creates a booteable diskette.
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/revision/2863.html

This download will want to create 4 diskettes, you only need to create the first diskette to upgrade to version 4.50.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Hi!

The link does not work anymore. Can someone provide me a valid link? I could not find an offline firmware upgrade. Thanks in advance.
