SAN i/Q 7.x upgrade

I have a LeftHand SAN currently running DL380G4 and DL320S nodes on SAN i/Q version 7.00.4090.0. I plan to upgrade to 8.5, as this is the newest release the DL380 servers will support. Has anyone done this using the new CMC 9? HP instructed I can use this, and I am currently downloading the upgrade files via the CMC. Looks straightforward, just want to make sure I'm not missing something, mainly with the LSMD. I show this as already being installed, however the CMC downloaded 7.0.01 LSMD upgrade. Finally, do I need to go to 8.0 then to 8.1 then to 8.5 or can I go from 7.x to 8.1 to 8.5? Thanks for any help!

Re: SAN i/Q 7.x upgrade

The CMC should handle it all for you.

The CMC downloads EVERYTHING regardless of weather it is already installed.

You should not need to worry about intermediate versions, as the CMC will apply the upgrades in the right order, and facilitate any reboots needed inbetween.

Re: SAN i/Q 7.x upgrade

I did this very upgrade on Tuesday. The CMC will do everything as long as your at SP1 of version 7. Going from V7SP1 to 8.5 took awhile as it does go up to 8.1 first and then to 8.5.
