BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

We have several disks BD30087B53 with HPB5 firmware. We try to update firmware to HPBC, but can't do it. We tru to use different Firmware Maintenance CD from 7.70 (with HPBC(A)) till 8.30 (with HPBC(D)), but result is the same.

WriteBuffer failed with retirn code: 1040.
Hardware update: 410
CDB: 3B 7 0 8 80 0 0 80 0 0
Call Status: 0
Command Status: 0
Scsi Status: 2
Sense Data: 70 0 5 0 0 0 0 A 0 0 0 0 26 84.....
Failed:....
from HPB5 to HPBC Error=0x410

We made a lot of eksperiments on MSA1000 library and with different servers. But still cant update the firmware.

Have anybody any ideas?

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Try update of firmware revision level in sequence e.g. HPB9 first etc. before jumping HPBC

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Hi, Sameer!

I've just try to follow your recomendations.
I've try to make flashing like supplemental updates with several versions of Firmware Maintenance CD and try to use HPB6, HPB7, HPB9, HPBA firmware.

HPB6, HPB7: "Cannot load HAM module..."
HPB9, HPBA: "WriteBuffer failed with return code..."

Cheers

Privet,

Maybe this will help:

-or-

Try updating the drives in a system backplane rather than the MSA1000.

Hi!

We try to do it in the MSA1000, in the DL380 G4, in the ML570 G2 with SA6400... many variants. But result is the same :( Mysticism :(

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Hi, I remember having a similar issue a while back. Try putting the disk firmware on a floppy then booting the firmware maintainence CD and pointing to the image on the floppy (that helped when I got the code load failed message) something to do with old code on the CD utility perhaps.

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Hi, I have the same problem with the BD30087B53 fw upgrading. Finally, did you find any method to upgrade the fw?. Did it work to put the fw in a floppy disk?.

Regards.

Jose Miguel.

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

Hi, Jose!

We couldn't find the decision unfortunaly and ceased an any attempt to upgrade firmware on this type of disks. We've try a different approach - from Maintenece CD, from floppy - doesn't matter.

Good luck!

Re: BD30087B53 disk unable to update firmware

I had the same problem with DF0146B8052 HDD's in ML150 g6 with p410 controller. Firmware was HPD5 and no way to upgrade to HPD6 - from windows it was not able to find compatible hardware and from Firmware Maintenance CD it tried to update and then show exactly the same error the original poster had.

We ended up installing the drives to DL180 g6 with p212 controller - sucsessful update from windows then.

If you put the HDDs in DL380 G4, you need to upgrade Smart Array firmware first to the lastest verison, and then HDDs firmware.

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!
