I am looking to upgrade my FAS3140 pair and FAS2040 pair of controllers to 8.0.2 from 7.3.3. Autosupport recommends that i update the disk firmware for the disks X292_HVIPC560F15 to the latest firmware NA02 as a precursor to any Ontap upgrade.
I downloaded the Disk Qualification Package v3 and copied to the /etc directory on one of the controllers (the package was not on the controller).
Then i copied the disk firmware to the /etc/disk_fw directory. The firmware consisted of a single file called X292_HVIPC560F15.NA02.LOD (i noticed that all the other files in this directory have a corresponding FVF file as well).
i checked the options raid.background_disk_fw_update.enable was set to on and then waited. Nothing happened so i thought i might run overnight but no joy.
I have checked the disk fw level with
storage show disk -T
but this confirms the firmware is at the same level.
i deleted all the files in the disk_fw directory and copied the contents of the all.zip
after a minute or so i could see that the disk firmware X411_HVIPC420A15.NA01.LOD was being downloaded to the disks. However about 16 hours on there has been no such firmware update to the X292_HVIPC560F15 disk.
Looking through the message files reveals no error regards the X292_HVIPC560F15 disk. There are numerous messages regards the updating of the firmware for the other type of disk we have.
i have rechecked that this disk is definitely the one we have and that its firmware is out of date.
yes - somewhat red-faced but i did not put the firmware onto the other controller in the pair - hence no firmware upgrade. Once i did that it kicked off nicely but then proceeded to fail a disk. Will need to replace that very soon.
