Help with Smart Array P410 specs and update?

Hi,

 

I've got a Proliant Dl160 G6 with a Smart Array P410 controller.

I'm wondering, and haven't found clear information online:

 

1) How do I find the current firmware version of this controller, and how do I update it if needed?

I see these options:

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=4017895&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4103%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken#Firmware - Storage Controller

 

But am not sure if the only one that applies to me is the 5.14 1/16/2012 update.

 

2) What's the max capacity of the controller per drive? From an older spec sheet it looks like 3TB, but I'm hoping with new firware or otherwise I could use 4TB drives. 

 

Below is output from 'lspci -vvv' regarding the controller. Thanks for any help!

Re: Help with Smart Array P410 specs and update?

quickest way to see what the current firmware version is on the P410, cat /proc/scsi/scsi

 

You can also look in dmesg and see the firmware level and driver version when hpsa loads

Re: Help with Smart Array P410 specs and update?

Thanks, am just able to get back to this issue.

 

I've installed hpacucli and got the installed firmware version:

   Firmware Version: 3.66

 

Can't figure out if this is the latest firmware or not. This link,near bottom, shows the current Firmware for Storage Controller as 3.30.  I see 3.66 from hpacucli (and 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi'), so I must be looking in the wrong spot. Any thoughts?

I've installed the current 3.4.4-125  drivers from here:
