HP Smart Array P410 firmware request

Hi - seeking help downloading firmware 3.66 for my HP 410 Smart Array.

To be specific " Online ROM Flash Component for Windows (x64) - Smart Array P212, P410, P410i, P411, P711m, P712m, and P812 Firmware - Storage Controller 3.66 " package

 

Can one provide me with this specific version please as the support site does not list firmwares older than 6.60?

 

http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=3984647&swItemId=MTX_00b8fc2277334ff486e0034ec6&swEnvOid=4024#tab-history

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: HP Smart Array P410 firmware request

Hopefully one can guide me to the proper " Firmware Maintenance CD ".

The disc should be from early 2011 if I am well informed.

Hopefully there is a link at the support section as theURL  listed above is from 22 Jan 2010 ( 8.70 ) and is to old

 

Help is appreciated!

Cheers

Torsten.

SPP 2015.06 has version 6.64:

Why do you think you need such an old version?

 

 

 

 

History down to 1.58:

Re: HP Smart Array P410 firmware request

What exactly is the problem?

 

AFAIK there was never a downgrade needed.


Hope this helps!

Re: HP Smart Array P410 firmware request

Using the 3.66B firmware the controller does not get in an infinite loop and boots up properly on my Asus P8H77-I, this can be found elsewhere on this forum. Main purpose was to access its ROM after initialising ( <F8> ) directly to be able to build the RAID10 array ( and eg. override battery setting ). 

 

Once my array got built, I flashed to the latest firmware again ( 6.64 from 15 June ) and disabled the boot option ( ignore ) in the motherboard's BIOS in order to boot straight from a separate sata hard drive. The array is used for my VMs while the separate hard disk is being used for the Xen OS to boot.

 

As I am new to this HP product I might find out another way to do things, eg accessing the controller settings through software. However I am not sure if you can actually build an array once booted to an OS ( eg from a live CD ). Regular maintenance, eg firmware upgrades, should be no issue.

 

Thanks for your help, it is highly appreciated and gets me going to start testing on my XenServer

Re: HP Smart Array P410 firmware request

It says no controller found - can you see it in BIOS -> PCI devices and during boot?

 

Example (P220i here):
