How to update DG146ABAB4 from HPD7 to HPDA or greater

Hi,

Im quite new to servers, so bear with me.

I have a DG146ABAB4 in a dl360 server. storage administrator indicates that it requires a firmware update from HPD7 to HPDA. 

Ive spend the past 5 hours trying to do this with no luck. How do i do this? 

Thank you

Thankyou for the advice. I have tried that and encountered the following error. You can also see the drive in the storage administrator.

Hi @GeorgeGohl888 ,

Thank you for trying and the update.

Could you please try the below : 

1) Try updating from HPD7 to HPDA, and then to HPDC 

2) If HPDA is done, try HPDD / HPDE

3) Try updating the Controller Firmware (what is the Controller firmware ?

Hi, Thankyou for the reply.

I tried all versions of the firmware which yielded the same result.

The controller P410i is updated to the latest version i could find (6.64). The server is a DL360 running windows server 2019.

Hi @GeorgeGohl888 ,

I believe this could be cos of Operating System Support / compatibility.

In this Case please try Offline Method - using SPP.

You may add the file downloaded from : https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_e11e5507adf240eba4f281244d#tab3

HPE SPP : https://techlibrary.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=G7.1 

Add it to SPP and run.

Thank you
