Hello Marcello

I'd like to understand better the reason you have for not using L&TT so I can provide you with a better answer.

But I still can say yes, you can.
There is an alternate method called FUP tape (Firmware UPdate tape)

You still require L&TT to create the FUP tape but it can be created on a different drive on a different server. Notice HP no longer provides this media.

Please read the L&TT user guide for more information:

Re: MSL6060 Drive FW update without L&TT

Hi Efrain, it's just a customer issue that he doesn't want to install L&TT, we are a outsourcing contractor, but let's see if I can convince him, I know L&TT and it gives a lot of futures, but I'm still wondering, that their is no more the possibility to update the Drive FW with MSL Util ... !!! it was a great opportunity in situations like this....
Cheers and Thanks

Re: MSL6060 Drive FW update without L&TT

if your problem is the installation of LTT on the server, I can suggest you to copy the LTT directory in a cd, and start the tool from there, it will work and let no traces on the host.
you should just pay attention to put all the firmware you need on the directory fw before to build the cd.
