Firmware upgrade of Smart Array 641/642

Hello,
I want to install the 128-MB Cache Module but actually the controller firmware version is 1.20.
So, I must flash the Smart Array 641/642 controller firmware to Version 1.30 as told on the installation recommandations.
I downloaded several firmwares to update the firmware with boot cd or usb key but the version is still on 1.20.

Online Rom Flash

i recommend to use the online Rom Flash (if u're using a M$ OS)
at least patch to version 2.48 to fix the known battery issue

Thanks for the reply,

CP006629.exe (online) :
Windows 2003 Server indicates that this file does not need to be installed

CP006628.scexe :
and for this patch, the update is already made.

It is possible that the system is already up to date?

I have come across issues with CPs. Sometimes it will work just fine if instead of clicking 'Install', just click 'Extract' and unpack the files for the update to somewhere in your file system.

Then run cpqsetup.exe and you may have a better chance of upgrading the firmware. Some of the packages just don't install correctly.

Good luck.
