windows 2008 R2 64B cluster


I'm trying to install Windows 2008 R2 64B server on DL 380G5 with MSA 1000 (Fiber connection)
I had firemware version 4.88 (If I remember right) and for looking into some forum I need to upgrade the firmeware.
So I upgrade to 7.0 A/A

(What is the different between this version and 5.3 A/P version?)

I'm still getting error in my Windows 2008 cluster
Failed to put PR reserve on cluster disk 0 from node status 170
Cluster Disk 0 does not support Persistent Reservations. Some storage devices require specific firmware versions or settings to function properly with failover clusters. Please contact your storage administrator or storage vendor to check the configuration of the storage to allow it to function properly with failover clusters.

What I need to configure in the MSA 1000 to solve that?

How I can upgrade the MSA 1000 internal fiber switch ? (right now my firemware is V3.2.1b switch type 18.2 (from where I can download the firemware and how should I install it since in the swtich I should give only FTP IP)
