Re: HP SAN Switch 4/8 Firmware Upgrade

Hello Marcus,

upgrading from 5.1 requires the following upgrade path: 5.2.x - 5.3.x - 6.1.x - 6.2.x.
If I'm not mistaken the latest firmware should be 6.2.2c.

You can find the latest firmwares here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1143867&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=1143864&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=54#290.

Check the release notes before performing the upgrades.

Obtaining the necessary firmwares can be done on several ways:
- recommended: open a support call;
- if you have enough time you can browse the ftp, normally they should be still there.

Keep in mind if you're running these old firmwares, it's recommended to perform an update of the servers as storage boxes also.
Best of luck!

Hint:

Once logged on, scroll down to

Other Hardware (left column) and select switches.

Current document is

http://h20272.www2.hp.com/utility/document.aspx?docurl=Shared%20Documents/hw/switches/B-Series_FC_Switch_Connectivity_Stream_2010_09_17.pdf

and you will see the range from 6.2.1b to 6.2.2c for this model.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
