The advisory does _not_ explain why XCS 09501000 has been removed from the download pages.


If I try the original link:
http://h20293.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63121

I get
"Sorry, we are unable to process your request. Our system is experiencing some difficulties. Please try again later."

I get the same message when I enter a nonsense product number like 'xyz'.

Well, 'normally' I would trust this message as HP's systems often have 'difficulties', but I can open the XCS 09006000 page:

http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=T4256-63119

(This fits well with a rumor I've read this morning that 09501000 has been pulled back due to problems. I've check right now, but there is no appropriate customer advisory for the EVA4400. But that might be due to another 'difficulty'...)

Guys,

We have a case open with HP which is being escalated currently regarding an incident on EVA4400 where some of the Vdisks disappeared from a few hosts. We were originally told to upgrade to xcs 09501000 - we were later advised (just last week) that this code is now on freeze and to hold off on any upgrades.

Lionspb, can I suggest to you that please get in touch with your local HP folks .. they should provide you the same consistent advice (I hope ;)) regarding the freeze on xcs 09501000. So, dont go searching for this code just yet!

Hmm, now i think that upgrading to XCS 09500000 was a big mistake, and now i'll stay on it. :(
Who know, why the XCS 09500000 firmware was replaced whith 09501000 ?
Which bugs found?

Thanks

Is XCS 09500000 stable? I am running XCS 09006000.

I believe 09501000 has been pulled due to issues with it.

c01717503 - HP StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA4400) updates to XCS 09501000 are temporarily suspended

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c01717503

... sounds like an interoperability problem with Command View EVA V9.0 - let's wait for V9.0.1...

And so fast... that there's no release announcement yet, they have just removed CV 9.0 download link and added CV 9.0.1.

No release notes either...

Documentation is the same from February...
