How to upgrade Smart Array 6402/128 firmware/ROM on non-HP server?

Hi,

Please advice how to flash new firmware/ROM to the new HP Smart Array 6402/128.

It's installed on 3rd-party server and the HP Firmware maintenance CD complains with this message:
'The Firmware CD does not support deployment for this server.
Consult the support matrix on the HP website at
www.hp.com for a complete list of supported servers.'

Thanks in advance,
Andrew.

Have you tried using either the online or offline update utilities available from HP's website? They can be found in the location below and are categorized by OS:

The online will run within the OS and allow the update to occur while running, but does require a reboot. The offline will create a supplemental diskette to be used in conjunction with the Firmware Maintenance CD, so that may not work for you.

Hi Scott,

I've just booted up my server w/o Firmware Maintenance CD, then load it in, and autorun started application for firmware updating.

It was so easy, thanks!

With best regards,
Andrew.
