How to download the firmware files.

Hi, I'm trying to download firmware for some MSA2324fc, MSA2324sa, and MSA70s.  I'm at the appropriate page and click the "download" button, but all that does is open the .scexe file in a browser window.  How do I save it to disk?  I've used both firefox 10 and IE 8.  Both display the same problem.

 

Thanks!

Re: How to download the firmware files.

Hi ,

you can download the firmware from the following links.

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3882365&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=3971478&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1005

 

the above one is for MSA 2000fc and windows 2003.

If you want to choose a different product click choose different product and different OS if required.

 

You can also refer the below pdf for updating the firmware.

Re: How to download the firmware files.

Hi,

 

The problem isn't finding where to get the firmware, I was going to:

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3957480&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodSeriesId=3971509&prodTypeId=12169 for example.  The problem is that when I click on the download button, it doesn't offer to allow me to save the file to disk, but rather opens it in a new window.  I had this same problem in both firefox and IE.  Any suggestions?

.scexe is files for Linux.

Also they are used as addenum for the FW CD/DVD.

 

To download it:

Right click the file.

Select save target as.

Re: How to download the firmware files.

The problem is the ".fla" files.  For example, I'm trying to download firmware for an MSA2324sa. I'm on this page:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3957480&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=3971509&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4004

In the "Firmware - SAS Storage Disk" section, I'm trying to get: "* RECOMMENDED * HP P2000/MSA2000 72GB,146GB SAS 6G SFF Hard Drive (EH0072FARWC, EH0146FARWD) Firmware (multi-part download)."

I click on the "Download" button beside "Part 1" and instead of letting me save it to disk, it opens in a browser window. I've tried it both with IE and firefox. I'm running on xp sp3.  The download button pulls up the following link in a browser window:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-generic/p1398187605/v72871/HP_EH0072FARWC_HPD9.fla

I've gotten around it by doing an ftp session from the command line.  But this is tedious.  Is there not an iso image I can download that has all of the storage firmware on it?  I've been working for an hour and a half downloading.  :(

Re: How to download the firmware files.

This ISO is from 2009!

So it has old versions only.

Some time ago I read an announcement about a disk firmware bundle will be released in future, but it isn't there yet :-(

Hope this helps!

Re: How to download the firmware files.

This is from march 2011 and likely still doesn't have the latest files.

Consider to try the P2000 firmware update tools version 1.0.1.0 from hp.com.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
