Wrong Qlogic Storport Driver version by VCA

HP SIM 5.2+SP2
On the VCA web page of one server, "HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Adapter Kit for the x86 Qlogic Storport Diver" version shows 1.7.1.2 and 1.9.0.0 is available for upgrade. So I did (many times) and it logged successfully. After refreshing the VCA page, it still shows 1.7.1.2. What's wrong with that? Thanks.

Have you rebooted the server yet? If not then that driver update may be in a pending state until server reboot. After the reboot then the VCA should show the newer version.

OPTION 1
1.) Locate/download cpxxxxxx.exe. You can find it in the VCA Repository Manager. Just find the version you want to upgrade to, and download the file.
2.) Instead of running the install, extract it's contents into a directory of your choosing.
3.) Copy QlStorPortVer.exe from that extraction location to C:/StorageWorks/Version. If older version is currently there overwrite it. If QlScsiPortVer.exe is in C:/StorageWorks/Version currently delete it.
4.) Once this is done the problem will be resolved. If you check VCA immediately after the change the version does not update immediately. It takes about five minutes and a refresh of SMH in order for the version to update in VCA. Otherwise, a reboot of the machine will give you an immediate result.
