4048/2024 Firmware

Hi,

I have several old tape drives ML 4048's and 2024's. I am having issues with these devices and L&TT is telling me to udate the firmware as one option to fix...

I am trying to download the latest through L&TT vs4.22, but the path to the FTP site http://ftp.hp.com/pub/information_storage/ltt/firmware is bad, so no love there.

Also, trying to download from HP requires a sign in and support contract to download.

Can someone fill me in on what I need to do to get the latest firmware installed on my aging drives??

HP.com does not provide the files anymore, because it is another company.

HPE provides the files with entitlement required since a few weeks.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Torsten.

I finally called Enterprise support and they provided the .frm files I needed. 

The rep told me that providing the frimware files is still free, but requires a call to the support line and that is about all that is free anymore unless you have a support contract.

The HP rep set up a ftp site for me to download as our mail servers are very picky as to what they let in...

the latest version of ltt sends you to the hpe passport login so you can get an entitlement token
