Update Of Drive Firmware - A Few Questions


I have been tasked with upgrading the drive firmware on a pair of FAS2240's running 8.2.3P3 7 Mode and I had a couple of questions.


1) The only access I have to move the firmware and the disk qualifier files to the FAS is via FTP. Do these need to be moved to the approrpiate directories in BIN or ASCII mode?

2) Wanted to confirm that I will need to run this firmware and the disk qualifier on both of the nodes in the pair. Is this correct?


Thank you in advance!





Yes to both - files must be copied in binary mode and on each controller individually.
