DL580 array controller firmware upgrade failure

I have a Dual Xeon 700 DL580. I'm not finding success upgrading the firmware from 1.42 to 1.50. I was able to successfully upgrade the System ROM, but no matter what I try, the array controller is unable to take the upgrade.

I've tried the custom and express upgrade options.

I'm booting off of the ROM Update Utility v2.1.6 disk.

Re: DL580 array controller firmware upgrade failure

There was an issue with some of the Integrated Array controllers not updating - you'd get a Failure = Cmh something something...

Anyway - download

http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/10783.html

And then update to the latest version. If you have a look at the read me it will address this exact issue.

Re: DL580 array controller firmware upgrade failure

thanks for the replies.

the first option talks about upgrading the firmware to 1.34, which is below the current 1.42-6 (not sure, but it's in that range.)

as for the second link, under supported systems, i dont see support for the DL580? so will there be a problem using this patch?

Re: DL580 array controller firmware upgrade failure

I'm not sure why it doesn't as the same integrated controller is used in the DL380 and DL580.
