Firmware Upgrade ???'s

Hi:

Am looking for assistance with upgrading an EVA4000. I hve  the following

 

CV - 6.0.2

HSV200 controller - CROECAXC3p-6110

ARRAY - 6110

DISK - HP04

 

From what I have found out I should upgrade CV then controllers then the disks. I have donwloaded 

 

HDDBundled_Image_2010_08_27 (1).zip..............  HP07 (for the disks)

XCS_HSV200_210_Media_v6.250_T4256-10048 (1).ISO........ for the controllers

 

For CV though it seems I cannot get a free upgrade, only a 60 day trial.

 

When I tried to do a code load with the version of CV I have it requires a .SSS file for the firmware but the file is a .ISO.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this on where I need to go to get this this done.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did resolve the .iso issue, just needed the right software to extract the .sss file :). However the CV download states that the trial is for 60 days in a prod. env. This is a development environment, anyone know how limited the software is after the 60 days.

Hi

Your EVA will still work after 60 days but you will not be able to create anything only delete.

You can always install a new command view server when you need it.

The latest disk firmware file is HDDBundled_FC_Image_2012_08_17.zip You need minimum CV 9.4 or better 9.4.1 to manage the EVA, so you should contact HP in order to get a license. Since you probaby cannot get this version for download, consider to use CV 10.2.

Hope this helps!

Re: Firmware Upgrade ???'s

All the downloads (CV and Firmware) are ISOs, so consider to burn them, mount them or extract them (e.g. 7zip).

Hope this helps!

Thanks Guys;

 

Torsten I tried searching for that zip file on swdepot at hp but nothing. Anyplace else I should look.

 

Gilad as for reinstalling are you saying to then purchase or un install and then reinstall the same version.
