The HP SATA hard drive models with firmware versions prior to SN06, may experience erroneous drive failure indications. When this occurs, the drive will display a solid amber LED, but upon a hot-plug removal and re-seat or array reboot, the drive will function normally. Erroneous failures may occur when the disk drives appear to be idle or when on line and active.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that no other user is performing administrative functions on the MSA2000 storage system.
CAUTION: Updating the firmware of disk drives in a virtual disk risks the loss of data and causes the drives to be temporarily inaccessible.
NOTE: Disk drive upgrades on the HP StorageWorks MSA2000 is an offline process. All host and array I/O must be stopped prior to the upgrade. For more information, see the HP StorageWorks 2000 Family Modular Storage Array reference guide.
This is a self extracting executable module. You can execute this module via the command line console or from Windows graphical user interface.
Enter the MSA2000 SMU credentials in the second dialog window.
Enter the MSA2000 SMU IP address, a username with manage access rights and the password of this user account.
The following syntax can be used to invoke at the command line:
cpxxxxxxx.exe /target <MSA2000_IP> /user <USER_NAME> /passwd <PASSWORD> /s
MSA2000_IP is the management IP address of the MSA2000 controller
USER_NAME is the username account with manage rights on the MSA2000 controller
PASSWORD is the password for username on the MSA2000 controller
Instead of command line parameters you can use the following DOS environment variables:
OA_ADDRESS: set this variable for the IP address of MSA2000 controller
OA_USERNAME : set this variable for the username of MSA2000 controller
OA_PASSWORD : set this variable for the password of MSA2000 controller
Place the Smart Component in a temporary directory.
Enable execute access to this component using the command
From the same directory, execute the Smart Component. For example:
./CPXXXXXX.scexe --target <ip_address> --user <manage_username> --password <password>
Follow the directions given by the Smart Component.
Single ported drive will not be flashed if the owner controller of that drive is not accessible through network
Drives will not be flashed if the drive is in a virtual disk which is being initialized, expanded, reconstructed, verified, or scrubbed.
Flash operation on any pending disks will be aborted if the currently flashed drive is in LEFTOVR state or the virtual disk containing this disk is found to be in offline or critical state. If this does occur, the vdisk can be restored to online status by changing the drive status from leftover to available and then adding the drive to the vdisk as a spare. If a global spare drive was available, it will have been used to restore the vdisk to online status.
