StoreVirtual P4500G2 - update OS to version 11.5 is not available

Hi, we have an HP StoreVirtual P4500G2, OS version 10.5.

 

Now I would like to upgrade OS to version 11.5. It should be available through CMC, but only I see is message "All systems are up to date". CMC version is 11.5.

 

What is wrong?

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from  Storage Area Networks (SAN) (Small and Medium Business) to  HP StoreVirtual Storage / LeftHand. -HP Forum Moderator

Hi

there is no upgrade availble through the CMC from version 10.5

to higher version because HP have some sort of problem.

It can be done through special request to HP or by re-imeging

the system directly to version 11.0 or higher but this meens

delteting the existing system.

Hi,

thanks for response.

 

I have found this article https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=StoreVirtualSW , and there is written "To upgrade to LeftHand OS 11.5, use the Online Upgrade capability available via the Centralized Management Console."

 

Does it means, that this capability is available to upgrade OS to version 11.5 ONLY from version 11.0? And there is no option how to uprgrade from 10.5 to 11.5 without data loss?

Hi

The problem is to go from version 10.5 to version 11.0 and higher

if you have a valid contract with HP. You should contact support there is a

controlled release for upgrade.

The option to upgrade to 11.5 through the CMC is now available. However who is brave enough to actually do the upgrade given the previous history of issues ?

I have 11.5 running for a few weeks now, so far no issues reported...

Performed an online upgrade of a 4-node system (mixed G2 and G3) from 10.5 to 11.5, through the CMC.

It took just 1 hour, pretty fast on a live production system.

No issues experienced.

 

Allthough I notice that the FOM is still v.10.5.  Maybe there is no v.11.5 for FOM.  Anyone else seeing the same ?
