You normally do not do this yourself. You normally engage HP's services to do this for you.

Re: A5201A

This is normally a job for qualified service personnel, because you easily damage the system, if you do something wrong.
Contact HP!

Hope this helps!

Re: A5201A

Hi Jon,

Firmware Upgrade activity is very critical and should be done by HP support personnel or HP-ASP.

Cell board firmwares are System Firmware (SFW) and PDHC.
In brief the upgrade process would be
1. Download the firmware depot and put it in SMS
2. Install the depot using swinstall in SMS
3. Run FW utility from MP main menu.
4. Connect to SMS & select the required firmware image from the list.

Refer following link to get an idea how it is done.

Re: A5201A

BTW, the firmware above is just an example. Don't try this! You'll need a different one.
I strongly recommend to contact HP!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
