450GB SAS 15K DP Firmware

Hi,

We got a replacement drive as above for our LH SAN, it has firmware HPD2 on it, all of our other drives have HPD4 and i'd like to get this the same.

The problem is I can't find HPD4 on the HP website anywhere or the firmware CD, does anyone know where i can obtain it.

I was going to put the drive in an MSA60 to patch it before putting it in our LH SAN.

Thanks

Jeff

Re: 450GB SAS 15K DP Firmware

Generally speaking, the firmware always depends on the disk model. Not each 450GB drive is the same, there are different disk models with different latest firmware versions all covered by the same product number.
Use the disk model name for searching.

An example for EVA disks:

BD14656ABC HP0A
BD14658225 HP04

Both are the same disk related to speed and size, but different disk models using different firmware.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: 450GB SAS 15K DP Firmware

The model number is EF0450FARMV, i'm can't see much in the way of updates for that on the HP website so perhaps it's the latest firmware for that model of disk.

But the model number is different to the other drives in the cage, however, the spare part number and disk etc are the same.

Would this sound reasonable?

Yes, because it is not uncommon that parts come from different suppliers (as indicted by a different module numbers), but parts are interchangeable (as indicated by the same product / spare part numbers).

This is what I told you.

Maybe there is no update and the drive has the current version.

Hope this helps!
