Re: GSP FIRMWARE UPGRADE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL

Torsten and Andrew,
What you're saying might be true. But we cannot keep on purchasing new servers (because they are very expensive-above $100K) and be up-to-date with hardware. So, we have to compromise in our company with what we have - an old N-class4000 server.

Nowhere it is documented in the link below or in the firmware patches site or the hardware that our N-4000 cannot go upto B.02 firmware version. I mean no where! I was going by online documentation.

HP should clearly document it somewhere. I have been working with HP as UNIX SYS ADMIN for the past 5 years and this is what I have noticed - there is no central place/repository for documentation for any/all of the stuff.

anyways, thanks for your help, though.

Re: GSP FIRMWARE UPGRADE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL

Please see this:

ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/firmware_patches/hp/cpu/PF_CPREGSPA0112.txt

You will find your server in the "products" section.

Firmware is here:

ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/firmware_patches/hp/cpu/PF_CPREGSPA0112.tar.gz



There is some additional text in the release notes of the "B" firmware too:

"DETERMINING CURRENT VERSION:
...
If the revision number of the currently installed firmware is in the format of B.xx.xx, but not at level B.02.21 then install new firmware."


You don't have a B.xx.xx revision!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
