MSL 6000 FC - firmware

Hello, All!

We have MSL 6000 FC library with Ultrium 940 drive in it (LTO-4).

I have tried to find the last firmware update. It seems to me that this library is not supported any more. I’ve found old versions of the firmware (year 2008 for example), but I would like to have the last one. I looked for information in HP “storage product firmware and software support policy” document.

I linked for to look an active version of firmware. As of year 2013 there is only a new product named MSL 6480.

Is there any opportunity for me to find the last version of firmware and where can I find it?

P.S. Of course, I have tried to search on HP sites.

 Thanks for your help!

Re: MSL 6000 FC - firmware

The Ultrium 960 drive is still monitored by the engineering team but there has not been a need for a new firmware build in many years.  The last released firmware versions are G65W for the parallel SCSI drives in an MSL 5000/6000 - Torsten provided a link to the firmware bundle with that file, and M66W for the FC drives in MSL G3 products (MSL 2024/4048/8096).  Those two firmware builds are equivalent, just named differently since they are different host interface types.
