Update drive firmware

I have a ProLiant ML350 G6 that I replaced a failed drive in and Smart Storage Administrator advises me to update the firmware on the drive. I have a P410i array controller and the drive in question is a model DF0450BAERH.  I found a download for the drive:

I placed the downloaded .exe file into the swpackages subfolder of my SPP, but when I run SUM, the firmware update for the drive does not show up.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any assistance.

I just did a firmware update, go to the SSP download page and do a custom download to make a bootable ISO. It will build a bundle with all relevant packages you select. Then just boot from BIOS and click the automatic update.

Good Luck,

Okay, sounds like a plan.

Alternatively, could I just download the cpxxxx.exe file and just install firmware by running that?

Yes, you can just run as a normal execuatable, but if it does not fix the issue i would update the entire set just to be sure.
