Firmwareupdate returned 170

Hi,
I have some ProLiant ML310 G5 Servers with a P400 Array Controler. I tried to update the Firmware of this Controler with CP011321.
The Result in the Log-File is:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Setup Session Beginning 09.10.2009 - 20:13:12
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Command Line Parameters Given: /silent /reboot_message
Name: Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - Smart Array P400
and P400i
New Version: 6.86

Beginning Silent Session...

The software is installed but is not up to date.

Current Version:
Product ID 103C3234, Version 5.20: 1 found

An Array Controller ROM is not up to date

- the component will be updated to the new version

Failed: Slot 3, Product ID 0x103C3234, Version 5.20: 170

The operation was not successful.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
End Session
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The LOG-File says the Update failed with Code 170.
What does it mean??
If I control the Firmware the Version is the new one 6.86.
Where can I get a List of Returncodes??

Thanks

Re: Firmwareupdate returned 170

Hi,
I've made this procedure on 84 Systems and on 7 Systems I get the described result.
It seems, that the Firmwareupdate is correct, but what does the failurecode 170 mean?

To complete this report the following:

From another point of HP, we got the info that this error is based on old firmware versions of the connected Harddisks.
That was not the case with us. The firmware levels were up to date

Solution is that you start the update again. Then you get the following log entries:
----------------------------------------------------------
Command Line Parameters Given:

Beginning Interactive Session ...

Name: Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - Smart Array P400
and P400i
New Version: 6.86

The software is installed and up to date. The installation process does
not need to continue, however, you may still install the software.

Failed: Slot 3, Product ID 0x103C3234, Version 6.86: 170

The operation was not successful.
----------------------------------------------------------

If you make now a reboot of the system, then the new firmware active.

There is no matrimonial just where can I get a list of error codes here.
