Type:Firmware - Storage Controller
Version:TS201P007(1 Jan 3000)
Operating System(s):
This is a firmware upgrade for HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC and FC/iSCSI storage arrays which includes array controller firmware and approved companion versions of drive enclosure firmware. When installing array controller firmware, the process will also update firmware on attached drive enclosures. This firmware which adds improvements and corrects issues found during use and additional qualification testing after initial product release can be installed from any computer running a supported operating system with an Ethernet connection to the HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA Storage Array. This firmware package is capable of updating the following: HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC Dual Controller SFF Modular Smart Array, HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC Dual Controller LFF Modular Smart Array, HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI Dual Controller SFF Modular Smart Array, HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI Dual Controller LFF Modular Smart Array, HP StorageWorks P2000 LFF Drive Enclosure, HP StorageWorks MSA2000 LFF Drive Enclosure.

Upgraded to the latest SAS libraries, for improved internal error handling.

Prerequisites:

NOTE: This firmware upgrade is applicable ONLY for HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC and FC/iSCSI (combo) arrays and is NOT applicable for any other P2000/MSA2000 array products (including HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 SAS MSA and P2000 G3 iSCSI MSA arrays).


  • As with any firmware upgrade, it is a recommended best practice to ensure that you have a full backup prior to the upgrade.
  • When planning for a firmware upgrade, schedule an appropriate time to perform an online upgrade.
    • For single domain systems, I/O must be halted.
    • For dual domain systems, because the online firmware upgrade is performed while host I/Os are being processed, I/O load can impact the upgrade process. Select a period of low I/O activity to ensure the upgrade completes as quickly as possible and avoid disruptions to hosts and applications due to timeouts.
  • When planning for a firmware upgrade, allow sufficient time for the update.
    • In single-controller systems, it takes approximately 10 minutes for the firmware to load and for the automatic controller restart to complete.
    • In dual-controller systems, the second controller usually takes an additional 20 minutes, but may take as long as one hour.
  • Before installing new firmware, set the Partner Firmware Update option. In a dual-controller system, if the Partner Firmware Update option is enabled (recommended), after the installation process completes and restarts the first controller, the system automatically installs the firmware and restarts the second controller. If Partner Firmware Update is disabled, after updating software on one controller you must manually update the second controller.
  • During the installation process, monitor the system to determine update status and know when the update is complete.
  • After the installation process is complete and all controllers have automatically restarted, verify system status in the SMU or CLI and confirm that the new firmware version is displayed as running on all controllers.
  • Updating array controller firmware may result in new event messages that are not described in earlier versions of documentation. For comprehensive event message documentation, see the most current version of the HP StorageWorks 2000 G3 Modular Smart Array Reference Guide.
  • The Smart Component update process logs messages to CPQSYSTEMLogcpqsetup.log on the system drive in Windows and /var/cpq/Component.log in Linux.
  • The Smart Component update process manages the FTP & Partner Firmware Update (PFU) enable/disable settings.
  • When reverting to a previous version of firmware, note the following:
    • Ensure that both Ethernet connections are available and accessible before downgrading the firmware.
    • When using a Smart Component firmware package, the Smart Component process will automatically first disable Partner Firmware Update (PFU) and then perform downgrade on each of the controllers separately (one after the other) through the Ethernet ports.
    • When using a Binary firmware package, first disable the Partner Firmware Update (PFU) option and then downgrade the firmware on each of the controller separately (one after the other).
  • If you intend to use Windows Dynamic Disk (software RAID) on top of your hardware RAID there are some cautions to be considered. For more information, see the section 'Real World: Dynamic versus Basic Disks' in the topic at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd163558.aspx.

  • Failover time is affected by the number of system volumes; the more volumes there are, the longer the failover time when a controller fails.

  • When changing a replication set (for example, adding or removing a replication volume, or deleting the replication set), do so from the source system; when aborting, suspending or resuming a replication, do so from the destination system.

  • When changing the external-view volume of a replication set, do so from the destination system first, then perform the change on the source system.

  • MSA70 disk enclosures are supported for use with P2000 G3 arrays, but must have firmware 2.18 installed. Please check the MSA70 or P2000 G3 QuickSpecs to confirm which version MSA70 firmware is supported.

  • For the FC/iSCSI MSA Controller, mapping a volume via iSCSI and FC to the same server is not a supported configuration. Many operating system’s multipath solution will not correctly handle the multi-protocols. Do not map a LUN in this manner.

Installation Troubleshooting

If you experience issues during the installation process, do the following:

  1. When viewing system version information in the SMU System Overview panel, if an hour has elapsed and the components do not show that they were updated to the new firmware version, refresh the web browser. If version information is still incorrect, proceed to the next troubleshooting step.

  2. If version information does not show that the new firmware has been installed, even after refreshing the browser, restart all system controllers. For example, in the CLI, enter the restart mc both command. After the controllers have restarted, one of three things will happen:

    • Updated system version information is displayed and the new firmware version shows that it was installed.
    • The Partner Firmware Update process will automatically begin and will install the firmware on the second controller. When complete, the versions should be correct.
    • System version information is still incorrect. If system version information is still incorrect, proceed to the next troubleshooting step.
  3. Verify that all system controllers are operating properly. For example, in the CLI, enter the show disks command and read the display to confirm that the information displayed is correct.

  • If the show disks command fails to display the disks correctly, communications within the controller have failed. To reestablish communication, cycle power on the system and repeat the show disks command. (Do not restart the controllers; cycle power on the controller enclosure.)
  • If the show disks command from all controllers is successful, perform the firmware update process again.
