MSA 2012fc firmware upgrade procedure

I am upgrading the firmware on my HP Proliant servers, MDS-9124 fabric switches, and MSA 2012fc SAN.

So far, two of the Proliants had both their fc2142sr fiber HBAs crash during firmware upgrades.

I want to know the proper method to upgrade the 2012fc SAN to the latest firmware and drivers. I don't want issues. I will have full backups done before I attempt any upgrade.

Dual Controller Environments Resolution:

Log onto SMU or CLI/telnet.

If successful, the MC will be upâ check MC on the other controller to confirm it is accessible.

Halt all host I/O before upgrading.

The firmware upgrade can be performed using either FTP or SMU.

If unsuccessful, the MC may be suffering from the firmware issue.

Halt all Host I/O and power cycle the array. If access is restored, verify that MC on the second controller is accessible or operational.
