Firmware maintenace 9.0

Hi,

Is it supported to flash the storage nodes with the latest firmware maintenance CD. I can't find anything about it on the web.

The smartstart Firmware maintenance DVD 9.0 is made for firmware updates...

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Firmware maintenace 9.0

I don't think the question is about SAN/iQ.

Ivanbre wants to know if there is support to upgrade the ProLiant-based P4000 boxes with the V9.0 firmware maintenance DVD.

Re: Firmware maintenace 9.0

I did not realize the P4000 subforum, sorry.

However, there are advisories related to disk firmware that points directly to the maintenance media.

Example:

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Firmware maintenace 9.0

Thanks for the reply guys.

I flashed the nodes as the documentation is really "good" as usual.

Re: Firmware maintenace 9.0

While I've never seen it "officially" stated, the Lefthand support engineers have never advised me against flashing with the latest HP firmware maintenance when I've asked.

However, they will release those patches as official "SAN/iQ" patches once they have been regression tested, so in general it is probably best practice to wait for the official patches for LeftHand nodes.

There's a non-answer for ya! ;)
