HP DLT-8000 FIRMWARE UPGRADE

I have downloaded the LLT Software and need to upgrade on a network completey isolated from the internet, I need a way of flashing the drives with the latest firmware without connecting to the web.

Many Thanks

You can install LTT on a pc / server connected to internet and download fw from the menu,
or you can brouse the following link and download the needed FW,
Then transfer the FW file to the server non connected in internet and copy it on the directory firmware under the Storagework libraryandtapetools directory (in program files)

Yep shortley after I posted this thread, I downloaded the correct firmware needed for my drives namley Version 089/CPQ-2 , from this I created a firmware upgrade tape and used the manual way of upgrading the firmware (Holding the unload button untill Write Protect LED Flashes release and press again now both flash, the dive is now ready for dlt tape with firmware insert tape and let it do its thing as soon as the leds start flashing alternatly the firmware flash is in progress)

This worked wonders

But still many thanks for the reply.

Merry Christmas
