HP StorageWorks DAT 72 Firmware Upgrade

Hello,

I am running the HP LTT 4.5 SR1 on RHEL 5.1, and the following is my device information:

Product ID : C7438A
Drive Technology : DAT 72
Mech. Serial Number : HUN5011669
Firmware Rev : V303/HP
Target ID : 0
Target LUN : 0
OBDR Capability : Present
WORM Capability : Not Present

When I run some of the diagnostic, the tool notice that the firmware (V303) is old and need to be replaced with V601.

Since I am running on Linux there is no interface like the one in Windows that allows me to get the firmware by downloading it from the web.

How do I get the firmware V601 ? My search on HP site has turns out nothing.

Could i have the Linux OS version please?.

You can also update the firmware using l&tt after downloading the .frm file from the hp website and save it in the firmware folder.

I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1.

Sure that I can use the LTT to update the firmware if I have the .FRM file, but where do I get the file?

Re: HP StorageWorks DAT 72 Firmware Upgrade

I have downloaded this update package previously.

When I tried to run it it can discover my tape drive just fine, and also noticed that it has firmware version V303, but it does not perform any upgrade and just leave my tape drive as it is.
