Re: EVA disk firmware Problem

Hi,

There is no special reason. Both HDD Models are diffenet. one is ending with "A" and other is "C"

As per the latest HDD Bundle Image latest version of BF146DA47C is HP07.

Re: EVA disk firmware Problem

Which firmware did you update? The EVA? or the Disks?


These are 2 separate functions.

The current Disk Frimware bundle lists:

for BF146DA47A, HP02 is the current firmware

and

for BF146DA47C, HP07 is the current firmware.

Different model disks can and/or will have different "latest" firmware versions. Yes, different models with the same size and speed can have different firmware requirements.

Re: EVA disk firmware Problem

A common mistake.

Different models have different firmwares.

Re: EVA disk firmware Problem

Latest are:

BF146DA47A HP02 BF146DA47A_HP02.bin

BF146DA47C HP07 BF146DA47C_HP07.lod



So you need to upgrade the BF146DA47C to HP07!

Hope this helps!

Hi Sekhar,

There wont be any issue with different models as both models are 15k rpm drives and as suggested earlier try to upgrade the Disk firmware to latest for BF146DA47C model to HP07.
