SCSI disk firmware version for HP-UX11.31

I have two 73.4GB internal drives in a rp4440 PA-RISC server. The drives are: HP/ST373454LC and HP/MAS373735NC. Does anyone know where I can find the firmware version that is recommended for these drives if I install HP-UX 11.31 (currently HPC3). If another firmware version is recommended does anyone know where I can find it?
Thank you.

For HP/ST373454LC drive the HPC3 is the latest firmware.

I don't know HP/MAS373735NC drive.
If the model of the drive is MAS3735NC, the latest firmware is HPC4.

You can update the firmware by using DFDUTIL2 utility from ODE. You need to order for free PA0809 Offline Diagnostic Environment CD-ROM from

Zygmunt,
Thank you for the quick response. I should have typed MAS3735NC as that is the correct identifier (just excited I guess)

hi,

see this advisory

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=331334&prodTypeId=329290&objectID=c00776070

but also you dont need to update the firmware to install 11.31? it will just add other fixes/reliabilty of the drive
