My russian language skills are a bit poor after all the years ...

For online updates you need a cache module installed, otherwise do the update offline.


Hope this helps!

Hmmm, here is

** CRITICAL ** Supplemental Update / Online ROM Flash Component for Linux - DG072A4951, DG072BAAJA, DG146BAAJB, and DG146A4960 drives

HPDB (D)(10 Sep 2013)

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=3676015&swItemId=MTX_c05af704db3848daa7249e1747&swEnvOid=4103#tab-history

 

This is HPDB (D) - this usually means they fixed the loader for firmware from (A) to now (D).

Did you use this version?

What is the firmware of the drive?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Here is

But - this is a bit strange - there is an older version (C):

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=4296622&swItemId=MTX_f6fe35f063e945b19341b9c05f&swEnvOid=4103#tab-history

 

I would try both ...


Hope this helps!
