Firmware updates on MSA2000 G3 contoller without network management port. How to?

We apperently have 1 dead mgmt port on Controller B. We were able to upload and configure controller A to the newest firmware TS250P003.

How can we go about deploying the updated firmware to controller B without the us of the mgmt port? Controller B firmware is TS201R014

Thesse units have an onbaord USB port but I could not find any references on how to deploy onto a thrumbdrive and update the firmware. Besdides this 1 dead mgmt port the controller has been working for years.

Hi

you can not do upgrade from usb port this is a serial managment port

you could check if partner firmware upgrade is enabled

and see if you re-insert the controller with a problem if the controllers will update each other

in CLI

set advanced-settings partner-firmware-upgrade enabled

or try

set job-parameters partner-firmware-upgrade enabled

these command are from HP P2000 G3 MSA System
