hpacucli: application upgrade required (Debian squeeze)

We have a HP ProLiant G360 D6, SmartArray P410i and Debian squeeze with an up-to-date hpacucli from, Version "HP Array Configuration Utility CLI 8.70-8.0"


hpacucli works fine with P410i. Today we added a SmartArray P411 and created a Raid5 using the firmware setup tool.


When trying to access the new P411 with hpacucli, we get this error message:


HP Array Configuration Utility CLI 8.70-8.0
Detecting Controllers...Done.
Type "help" for a list of supported commands.
Type "exit" to close the console.

ctrl slot=1 show

Smart Array P411 in Slot 1

APPLICATION UPGRADE REQUIRED: This controller has been configured with a more
recent version of software.
To prevent data loss, configuration changes to
this controller are not allowed.
Please upgrade to the latest version to be able
to continue to configure this controller.


It seems I need a newer version of hpacucli, however I could not find any for Debian. I couldnt even find any reports about this error message anywhere. Do you have any suggestions how I can access the new controller with hpacucli? (sorry I can't tell you the firmware version of the P411 right now. We bought it in 04/2012).

Re: hpacucli: application upgrade required (Debian squeeze)

Same here on a HP ProLiant ML110 G7, SmartArray P212 with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS lucid. 


Any update here?





Tested on a second HP ProLiant ML 110 G7 which is working so far. Probably a different/newer controller firmware on the other machine. Tested the latest version from HP SDR hpacucli (v.8.70-8.0).
