The firmware will rev from A48B to A5F0. 2.0 FUJITSU SAS 3.5" and 2.5" Previously Released as: R156342 * Firmware versions D207 and D109 * -The Fujitsu SAS release for 15K 3.5" AL9LX and 10K 2.5" AL9SE SAS hard drive firmware to fix the possible offline conditions. A change was implemented in firmware to return a different sense data under certain rare error conditions. Making this change in some instances will allow the array controller the opportunity to initiate its own built-in error correction procedures rather than taking the drive offline. The firmware will rev from D206 to D207 on 3.5" and D108 to D109 on 2.5" drives. 3.0 MAXTOR SAS 3.5" Previously Released as: R159954 * Firmware Version BP05 * -This addresses Maxtor SAS HDD firmware issues, where under certain circumstances a hard disk drive may go offline, hard disk drives (HDD), may report offline due to a timeout condition. If the HDD is unable to complete commands, this may result in the controller reporting the HDD off line. This firmware update has improved SMART Reporting, where drives can report SMART trips due to aggressive SMART Error Rate Measurement counters during read verifies. 4.0 SEAGATE SAS 3.5" Previously Released as: R157626 * Firmware versions S515 and T109 * -This firmware affects the following Seagate SAS 3.5" 15k AND 10k hard disk drives.
