Re: EVA 4000/6000 Firmware

From firmware 6000 you can update to 6100 or 6200.
Firmware 6200 needs Command View 8.


Firmware 6100 here:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software8/COL19049/co-49348-1/XCS6100.zip

Firmware 6200 here:
http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63113A

Command View 8 here:
http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=CommandViewEVA8.0

Latest firmware bundle for the disks:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL17475/co-67136-1/HDDBundled_Image_2008_12_15.zip

From Command View, select the EVA, press "Code load" and browse to where the .sss file is.

Re: EVA 4000/6000 Firmware

Command View 7 and 8 require the licenses to be regerated on a new format.
You should already have the Command View / Bussiness Copy / Continous Access licenses. You can generate new ones in webware.hp.com, or contact your sales representative in HP.

That does not work for old CV-EVA licenses, because the papers did not include any order numbers. HP had to create special numbers for the migration.

I *strongly* recommend that you make sure you have *all* license keys present (not just the ordernumber - really *do* the fulfilment) before you start the upgrade.

I have seen customers where the process went, err, "suboptimal" - the instant-on license expired and he was without keys!!

Listen to UWE! I have seen the same thing. Get all the keys first. Some times this process doesnt proceed as we would like.

Re: EVA 4000/6000 Firmware

Yes, an important one: if you 'upgrade' from CV-EVA V6 you do need to uninstall the old version and reboot before you install V8.

Take some time to browse the documentation (release notes):
