P800 Array Controller: What happens with FW 2.04 ?

Hello,

this FW is factory pre-installed on our 2 new ML570G4 with P800 controller. But, this FW ist removed from all download sites. For P400, FW 1.18 ist coming back (but cant't be downloaded yet).

Can anybody tell me more ? It is safe to get in production with this FW ?

SA-P800 firmware v2.04 is available for download when selecting a DL380 G5 with Windows Server 2003 (x86 Edition), but not Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition. I see what you mean that the firmware isn't listed for the ML570 G4. Unfortunately, this is fairly common with new driver and firmware releases across different operating systems and models. I've often wondered whether the website isn't being updated consistently, or if the driver/firmware hasn't been certifed for the combination in question.

Today, HP posted FW 2.08 for P400 and P800.

It's a little bit funny. Yesterday, HP posted FW 1.18 for P400 as new and today 2.08 :-o

Here is the link to 2.08 for P800:

But, the file itself
( ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softlib2/software1/sc-windows-fw-array/p105797600/v40507/CP007474.exe )

is not present yet at ftp.compaq.com.
