Re: ssd firmware does not update

Online firmware flashing of drives attached to an HP Smart Array controller running in Zero Memory (ZM) mode or an HP ProLiant host bus adapter (HBA) is NOT supported


do you have cache installed ?

can you try offline update (via SPP 04.2015) ?

Re: ssd firmware does not update

It would appear the model number of your drive doesn't match one of the models this firmware update supports
