Proliant SAS Hard Disk Firmware

 

Proliant SAS Hard Disk Firmware

Hello. I have been having some issues with my Proliant DL380 G4. It is running Windows 2003 Server and Exchange 2003 Server. Every couple of weeks the Exchange Informarion Store gets corrupted with a -1018 error. This usually points to the SCSI hardware. I have upgraded the System BIOS and the P600 SCSI controller to the latest versions. Someone also suggested to me that I upgrade the SAS drive firmware. The server uses the 72 GB SAS drives, number 375861-B21. The HP Diagnotic sofyware lists them as HPDG072A9BB7. The drive firmware is version HPD0. This looks like the original firmware version for these drives. I am sure that HP must have updated the firmware for this drives by now. I have checked their web site over and over and can not find any reference to firmware versions available for these drives. Can anyone assist or point me in the right direction? Thanks for the help.

For some reason DG072A9BB7 is not listed anywhere. :(

Try the Firmware Maintenance CD.

Here is a link to the drives that are installed in my Proliant DL380 G4. http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product.asp?sku=2685295&extended=1. When I run the HP System Management Homepage it says the model number of the drives is HP DG072A9BB7 running firmware HPD0.
