when I try to update the firmware on 2 active /active heads
I got one one of the head
Refreshing information on all the disks.......
Downloading disk firmware can be disruptive to the system.
It involves spinning down and then spinning up all
affected disks, and suspending disk I/O to disks being
downloaded. This delay may cause clients to stop responding.
NOTE: Updating firmware on some Fibre Channel disks
may create an open loop condition which can only be cleared
by power cycling the affected shelf or shelves.
In a cluster, you should not disable the cluster or perform
any takeover/giveback actions until the firmware update
is complete. Disk firmware update should only be attempted
on one cluster partner at a time.
Downloading disk firmware can only be performed when the cluster is
enabled, and both nodes are able to communicate with each other.
Firmware download cannot be performed when in takeover mode.
Refer to the man page for disk_fw_update for complete details.
Are you sure you want to continue with firmware update? n
what should i do?

If you have RAID_DP and option raid.background_disk_fw_update.enable is on (default), disk firmware update starts automatically as soon as you install new firmware file and happens in background.
