Hp P2000 Firmware

 updated firmware on HP P2000 G3 with two controllers. All the documentaion says that you upgrade firmware on one controller would update on the other as well. But when I upgraded, it just did for controller A with out changing firmware on controller B. This is in production so what is the best way to bring the controllers to the same version or is it okay to leave it as it is

Re: Hp P2000 Firmware

How did you the update? FTP, Windows tool, Webpage?

 

Both must have the same version.

 

Upgrade the second now or enable PFU (partner firmware update).


Hope this helps!

Re: Hp P2000 Firmware

I updated through the windows update tool. How do you enable PFU. Any potential risk or downtime in doing that I don't have any issues accessing any data from the P2000, what could the problems leaving as it is

Re: Hp P2000 Firmware

The windows tool should update both controller, unless the process is interrupted.

 

I would now extract the firmware file TS240P004-02.bin and use ftp to update.

 

> ftp P2000-controllerB

 

> user / password

 

> bin

 

> put TS240P004-02.bin flash

 

 

wait until the update has finsihed, check


Hope this helps!

Re: Hp P2000 Firmware

So can this be done when the production servers are accessing the P2000.Also I can't find a way to extract a file TS240P004-02.bin.

This is the file i Used and I can't extract it to get the bin file cp018818.exe

Re: Hp P2000 Firmware

Yes, the other controller takes the ownership of the vdisks. The multipathing software will handle this.


Hope this helps!

Thanks

I upgraded the firmware on the 2nd controller and rebooted it.

It 2nd controller didn't come back online.

I had to shutdown all the hosts rebooted both the controllers.

Then they came back online
