Need to install sata drive firmware on DL180

Hi,

I need to intsall the firward update for the gb0250eafjf drivers on my DL180 servers.

The advisory/update url is http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=MTX-a3fcf69b6cd8438295238f998f〈=en&cc=us&idx=1&mode=4&


There seems no way to do this, despite HP sending me the advisory and telling me this is the problem I am having.

The firware maintenance CD does not support dl180 and will not start if you try and boot it. The windows online update I have tried with a pe boot 2003 and this simply says I do not have the relevant hardware installed as I have e200 controller which the online cd does not support.

Any ideas how I can get a supported linux image applied to a USB key to install this?

It's really urgent as we are suffering hardware issues.

Thanks.

Re: Need to install sata drive firmware on DL180

I had a similar issue with a DL185 G5 and new firmware maintenance cd versions. I got around this using FWCD version 8.40 which supports DL185 G5, propably DL180 G5 too.

Use the HP USB Key utility for windows to make a usb stick out of firmware maintenance CD version 8.40 and copy the wanted .scexe patches to the stick folder /compaq/swpackages .

Usb key utility:

Firmware Maintenance CD 8.40:

Hope this helps.
