There are too many components on the array, so dont really firmware upgarde will upgrade which portion and thanks in advance for giving education on EVA-array firmnware.

Re: firmware for EVA-4400

The XCS version is firmware for the EVA.

XCS 09534000 is here:
https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63133

You need to upgrade Command View to 9.2 and then to 9.2.1

Make sure to read all the release notes and upgrade documents.

If you contact HP support you can request that a support engineer performs the upgrade.

Re: firmware for EVA-4400

The EVA array firmware is called XCS.
The most current version is XCS09534000.

In most cases the upgrade can be done online.

In oder to get an idea I suggest reading these two mauals:

HP StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array user guide

and
