Re: MSA1000 Disk firmware upgrade

Hi,

Thanks i am looking how flash the firmware on the disk not the controller.FW CD has the correct firmware for the disks but comes back and says already up to date when you apply.
The firmware on the disk has not be updated.
So my question is this a supported method on the MSA1000 to flash the disk firmware not the
controller.

Thanks

Re: MSA1000 Disk firmware upgrade

hi,

did you try to contact HP directly, or some HP partner ??? yes i know what you want to upgrade, but sometimes the HP tools are strange, we have the MSA 1000 with 2 proliants DL380g4 ( as a cluster product ) and when we upgrading the firmware we are using for this online tool set or offline boot the cd and what is not up-to-date it will be market and them upgraded.

You can update disk f/w after controller f/w 5.3(a/s) or 7.x(a/a) upgrade

Re: MSA1000 Disk firmware upgrade

Hi PHL,

I was told that we you run the FW CD that driver for the fibre coneection is not been loaded so it does not see the disk so the flash would fail.Since then i have left it as it is but you may want to try what the other forum member has suggested.

Hi! PJ
If you want disk f/w upgrade,
first you must upgrade controller f/w.
and use f/w cd 8.5 or lower for disk f/w upgrade.
controller f/w 4.x have a problem with f/w cd.
goodluck!

Hi,

Thanks for the info i will keep this information you have provided as the this is a live box know and is all working fine so i dont want to do anything at the moment.
When i was updating the disk firmware i was building the Server form scratch and then doing the MSA so just wanted to update the disk firmware then came across the problem at the time so know you have told me i will know next time.
