Disk Drive Firmware Update Recommended

Hi everyone,

When booting my server, I see POST error messages telling me to update 4 of my 15 drives with new firmware. I am using an HP ProLiant DL380 G6, and when I boot the server, I see this message: "A firmware update is recommended for this physical drive."

The two models the prompt lists are "HP DG146BAAJB" and "HP DG0146BALVN". I ran the latest Service Pack for ProLiant that is supported (version 2017.04.0) and updated everything it listed, but this doesn't seem to have fixed anything. Does anyone have individual download links for the firmwares, and can you also explain how I can intergate those into my existing copy of the SPP?

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the firmware links!

Two questions:

1) Why wasn't this upgrade completed by the SPP already?

2) How do I install these updates if I'm running ESXi on my server? It would be ideal to add them to my existing copy of the SPP and deploy it that way. If you have any instructions on how to do this, please share them!

Thank you again!

Hi,

May be the SPP version you have used is not supported, or it may not have the latest  firmware for these drive model .

Which SPP version you have used ?

I believe you need to use SPP 2017.04,  or earlier versions with G6 server,  SPP2016.10

For VMware version use following (individual update), Please refer installation instruction.

Re: Disk Drive Firmware Update Recommended

Thank you! I was using SPP 2017.0.4, and I was able to figure out the installation of the firmware using the instructions provided on the individual download pages. I just copied the files onto the USB drive running the SPP, and it worked.

Thank you so much!
