hard drive and Smartarray 5i controller firmware updates on a DL380G3

I'm trying to find where I can download hard drive and 5i controller firmware updates form the HP support site and I'm having zero luck. Would anyone be so kind as to point me in the right direction?

OK great, but does that CD include Hard drive firmware updates too?

I do sincerely appreciate the link being provided, but how about a bit of an explanation to go with it?

Yes the firmware maintanence CD has the firmware update for the hdd too. You need to burn the ISO to a cd or use virtual media and mount the ISO, reboot the server and that will give you the current version and the latest version and the option to update.

Thank you all for your responses.

My Smartarray 5i controller was telling me at POST that a drive in SCSI ID2, port2 needed its firmware updated. When I booted from the firmware update CD (8.4.0-0) it said my smartarray controller needed to be updated but said nothing about my hard drive firmware.

I then updated my smartarray controller firmware, rebooted and the error message about HDD firmware was gone.

Thanks again for your help.
