MSA 2040 Firmware Update

Hello,

 

I just got a MSA 2040 with 12 900GB 10K drives and 2 400GB SSD drives. I will use 10GbE iSCSI for this.

I have read that you need to update to the latest firmware to be able to use iSCSI but maybe that's not needed anymore?

However I would like to see if I have the latest firmwares installed but I can't seem to find the right information about this.

If I click on "Update Firmware" I get the following:

Bundle Version: GL220P008
Storage Controller Code Version: GL220P009-02
Storage Controller Loader Code Version: 27.016
Memory Controller FPGA Code Version
Management Controller Code Version: GLM220R009-10
Management Controller Loader Code Version: 6.18.22216
Expander Controller Code Version: 3203
CPLD Code Version 55

These are the same for both Controller A and B.

But if I check on the HPE site for Drivers, Firmwares etc for my SAN the latest version is "GL220P009"

I read somewhere that there is a Windows executable that will update the firmware for both controllers but I'm not able to find it anywhere. Does anyone know if there is something like this?

 

Also, I've been trying to create a support ticket with HPE but it keeps telling me that the serial number doesn't match the product specified.

Re: MSA 2040 Firmware Update

Thanks. So that's the only firmware you can update? So there's not a separate firmaware for "Management Controller" etc.?

Re: MSA 2040 Firmware Update

there is a single bundle for msa controllers and several firmware for disks and add-on chassis.

Hope this helps!
