FW update of 72Gb SAS drives on rx3600

Hi, need to upgrade some drives attached to an rx3600. Copied the firmware file to the EFI partition but ODE wont run from there. So I downloaded the ODE CD image and installed ODE to the HPSP partition. Now when I run DFDUTIL from ODE it can see the drives but cant find the firmware file when it searches. Where do I put the firmware file so that DFDUTIL can find it or how do I get ODE to run when connected to the EFI partition with EFI shell?

Re: FW update of 72Gb SAS drives on rx3600

What is the disk model, something like BD0729A4B7 or BF07285A36 etc. and what firmware is installed?

Hope this helps!

418371-B21 is the product#, but this product can be totally different disk models (all with same specs). Please check what model you have.

Hope this helps!

Re: FW update of 72Gb SAS drives on rx3600

Are the disks internal?

Connected to the default SAS controller or to an optional P400?

In case of doubt, send an "ioscan -fn".

Hope this helps!

Re: FW update of 72Gb SAS drives on rx3600

The disks are connected via a P400. I dont have access to the system any more so I'll have to get the customer to do this and get back to you. Thanks for your help.

The command

# sautil /dev/ciss0

will tell you. Adjust the device file as needed.


You will get:

...

---- SAS/SATA DEVICE 1I:1:6
...
Device Type...................................... DISK
Disk Capacity.................................... 36.4 GB
Device Status.................................... OK
Device Vendor ID................................. HP
Device Product ID................................ DG036A8B53
Device Firmware Version.......................... HPD7
...


for each disk.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
