hpssacli/hpacucli HPSA Driver Version does not update

Hi,

After update the hpsa driver on one server, the hpssacli/hpacucli client does not return the right driver version (even after a reboot).

Via modinfo, i have the good version:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

POP|test-01:~# modinfo hpsa| head -6
filename: /lib/modules/4.11.0-14-generic/kernel/drivers/scsi/hpsa.ko
license: GPL
version: 3.4.20-100
description: Driver for HP Smart Array Controller version 3.4.20-100 (d207/s683)
author: Hewlett-Packard Company
srcversion: E7DBEC09F1CC2E5C24633F9

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But the hpssacli/hpacucli client still return the ancient version:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

POP|test-01:~# hpssacli ctrl all show detail | egrep -A1 hpsa
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.16
--
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.16
--
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.16

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use the hpssacli version 2.40.13.0:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

POP|test-01:# hpssacli version

HPSSACLI Version: 2.40.13.0
SOULAPI Version: 8.4.13.0

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does someone have a solution?

Thanks.

Re: hpssacli/hpacucli HPSA Driver Version does not update

Well, the solution here is simple. I have forgotten to pass an update-initramfs command.
Now the version is well returned by the hpssacli/hpacucli client:

POP|test-01:~# hpssacli ctrl all show detail | egrep -A1 hpsa
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.20
--
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.20
--
Driver Name: hpsa
Driver Version: 3.4.20
