EVA 6400 firmware upgrade & addition of disk enclosures

Hi All,

 

We have planned two activities on EVA6400.

 

(1) Add new 6 disk enclosures and

(2) Upgrade firmware from 09534000 to 11001100

 

Can you please suggest proper procedure for these activities? Also any documents related to it.

 

Thanks

the page has links to release notes and product upgrade guide.

 

Finally upgrade the disks:

Add enclosures:

 

put 1 disk in each enclosure, open 1 loop at a time and add the enclosures online. Once down, install all other disks one by one and wait a minute after each disk and add them to the diskgroup all at once.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: EVA 6400 firmware upgrade & addition of disk enclosures

Sorry might be asking stupid question here but from where i need to run the ISO file?

 

can describe the upgrade procedure in more detail? i had downloaded 10.3 CV and FW10001000 and FW112000000.

 

We are using EVA 6400.

 

Thanks.

Torsten.

Unpack or mount the ISO files.
All procedures are written in the product update guide.

Hope this helps!
