How to update firmware on MSl 2024 on a HPUX 11i host

I need to update the firware on our library. I've downloaded the firmware bundle and unpacked it on our 11 server to which the MSL is attached. I also have the LTT 4.2 tape tools install. Per the firmware install instrcutions
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=1809913&swItem=co-38809-8&prodNameId=1809914&swEnvOID=7&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0

I need to use the ltt tools to upload the firmware to the devices. I've looked over the ltt commands and I don't see a update firmware option so how do I do it?

Hi Norman,

Below are the steps to update library/tape firmware using LTT

1. Change pwd to /opt/ltt
2. Initiate LTT (./hp_ltt)
3. Select hardware scan (1 option)
4. Enter command> continue (to initiate the scan)
5. Enter command> 1 (or the number corresponding to the library, it will select the library)
6. Enter command> firmware (to perform firmare upgrade/downgrade)
7. Enter command> 1 (to select the library for firmware)
Note: you can also select the drives at this screen.
8. Enter command> start (to initiate the library firmware upgrade process).

Detailed information about this process is available in the LTT user guide (page 48).

Using the LTT TUI interface worked. The cmd line options I was specifing for some reason did not.

thanks
