Offline means, no server is allowed to access data during this time. Shutdown the servers or at least stop applications.

See the FW install guide and release notes!

Hope this helps!

It is even more than a 'normal' offline, because a *full power-cycle* must be done with the whole EVA-4400.

A full power cycle is power off, then power on.


All information is on

http://www.hp.com/go/bsc -> manuals -> disk systems -> your eva

Hope this helps!

Please read the "Updating Product Software XCS 09510000 document - it describes the appropriate steps to be done.

(It is the correct document for the XCS 09522000)

Re: need information about offline upgrade!!!

'should' is not enough.

I wrote "full power-cycle" and that means the controller enclosure as well as *all* attached disk drive enclosures.

But, as I have learned from a different thread this week, even that might not be enough:
One has to check every I/O module in the disk drive enclosures if the update was successfull. If not, cause a reset by pulling it, waiting a bit and pushing it back while the EVA is running. That _should_ trigger another update attempt.

Many thanks for all. Upgrade XCS was succeseful. My EVA now working more faster and more stable.

P.S: For "*full-power cycle*" i switch off and switch on all PDU :)
