Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Hi,

I am also stuck updating firmware!

Case: I am trying to upgrade HP SCSI Ultra320 (BD30087B53) firmware on 17 disks. After I did upgrade the controller firmware (2,84) it states at boot up that my disks must at least have firmware version HPB9

Hardware:
Proliant DL380 (firmware p51 07/19/2007)
HP SCSI Ultra320 (BD30087B53) 17 pieces (firmware HPB7)
SmartArray 6i (192MB, battery cache) (firmware 2,84)
SmartArray 6400 (320MB, battery cache) (firmware 2,84)
HP Storageworks (SmartArray 6400)

I have tried to use different Firmware Maintenance CD 7.40, 8.30-0 and 9.20B-0. Also tried to add substitute firmware:
HPB8
HPB9
HPBC(A)
HPBC(B)
HPBC(A)
HPBC(D)

I have also tried to upgrade firmware (Maintenance CD 7.40) thru DL360 G4 SmartArray 6i (firmware 2,36, no battery cache) and another DL380 G4, same results. Also tried to only upgrade with one disk, two disks, same results.

Hoping that for an solution, thanks in advance!
