SAS3442E-HP Firmware

I wonder if someone can help...


I'm looking for firmware files (*.fw) to flash the SAS adaptor referenced in the subject line.


It currently has the IR firmware that was shipped with the adaptor, and I would like to flash it with the alternative IT firmware.


Does anyone have any idea where I might locate these files?


Thanks in advance.

Sorry for using old post, but I'm search for IT firmware for 3442E-HP, and found this topic. Can't open links (DNS mistake). Maybe someone can give me correct one?

Sorry for the bump, but I needed this too and I figured I would share.

Direct link to download page:

I was able to install the MegaRAID Storage Manager 9.00.0100 onto a Server 2016 OS to perform the firmware update and manage the RAID card. The installer for this is named "ta8rad91sr17.exe". Since this management software is used to manage many LSI/MegaRAID cards from many integrators and vendors, the download can be acquired from a competing server manufacturer's website, which you can locate via a Google search of the installer's name.
