Error Update Firmware Autoloader VS80

Hi, I've tried to update the firmware for this device to the latest, but half way through update, the software reported a failure and all the LEDS on the device front panel began to flash.

Rebooting the server does not detect the Autoloader, but does detect the tape section.
Rebooting the device makes do difference - you can hear the tape drive reset itself, but LED's continue to flash and is not detected by server.

OS is W2K SP3.
MODEL HP STORAGEWORKS 1/8 AUTOLOADER DLT TAPE VS80 - PRODUCT NUMBER C9264CB

Any ideas would be appreciated!!!

Re: Error Update Firmware Autoloader VS80

Hi,

You don't need to reboot the full server only you can reboot the tape drive.

I think while updating the firmware it curupted the flash rom of the drive that's why it failed if it is under warranty please log call with hp and replace the drive.

or

try to revert back with the old firmware.

Thanks,
