3PAR 7200 replacement disk missing from firmware database

Inserted replacement disk HITACHI HUC109090CSS600, listing firmware revision A5B0. Is this a suitable replacement disk or must firmware be at 3P02 to start with ?

Where does updatepd get latest drive firmware from, does it download it or simply pull it from the OS version, patches applied?

Re: 3PAR 7200 replacement disk missing from firmware database

The 3PAR firmware brings all firmware. If a device is not known by the firmware, you cannot use it.
for known devices.

Hope this helps!
