SAS drive Firmware Update

Hi there,

We have a proliant Gen 8 running 2008 R2 and recently one of the drives failed, so I got a new one but the Smart Storage Administrator software is saying the firmware should be updated from HPD2 to a minimum HPD4 .. problem is the latest one I can find for the drive is HPD2.

Drive: HPE 300GB SAS 6G Enterprise 10K SFF

Model: HP EG000300JWFVB (It says this model is a 12 GBPS but it's definitly 6)

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Re: SAS drive Firmware Update

Hi,

Smartarray firmware does not dynamically update the parameter called 'Minimum good firmware revision'. Due to this, the  value of this parameter is still holding the version from the old/replaced failed disk(stale information)

This should be fixed on server reboot and this is only cosmetic issue and can be ignored till reboot.
