Important Information

The firmware upgrade utility must be used to upgrade the controllers from the 06.xx.xx.xx controller firmware to the 07.xx.xx.xx controller firmware and I/O must be stopped prior to starting the download procedures. This includes any services dependant on the array, including Microsoft Cluster Services or database applications. The utility is installed along with the latest version of the MD Storage Manager. Once a controller is running the 07.xx.xx.xx controller firmware the controller firmware should be updated using the firmware download option in MDSM.

IMPORTANT: Prior to upgrading the controller firmware it is recommended
that all data on the MD3000 be backed up to storage media or another
data storage device as a precautionary measure. It is also highly
recommended to gather support information from the "support" tab of
the MD Storage Manager prior to performing any firmware upgrade
operations. This can also be achieved through the SMcli using the
''save storageArray supportData file="filename"'' command.


NOTE: The firmware upgrade utility will not allow you to upgrade from one version of 07.xx.xx.xx firmware to another, even though the controller firmware you are attempting to update to is a later or more recent version. The update firmware feature of the MD Storage Manager should be used to update firmware of the same generation.

NOTE: In non-English versions of the MD Firmware Cross Generation Upgrade Utility, it has been observed that the firmware may fail to activate after the download. While pending activation, the RAID Controller Modules will continue to operate at the previous firmware version. To activate the firmware, the following smCLI command must be used: SMcli [IP of Controller A] [IP of Controller B] -c "activate storageArray firmware;" where [IP of Controller A] and [IP of Controller B] are replaced with the actual IP addresses of the RAID Controller Modules.

On the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 operating system, CDs are auto-mounted with the -noexec mount option. This option does not allow you to run any executable from the CD.
To fix this problem, you need to unmount the CD, then manually re-mount the CD-ROM and then run executables.

The command to unmount the CD-ROM is
# umount

The command to manually mount CD is
# mount


On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, libXP (deprecated in RHEL5) is
required for the management application to run. This should be
automatically installed as part of the linux install process.
In addition the library is available on the resource CD in
the /linux/RPMS/rh5 directory

NOTE: Manual array discovery should be used with the MD Storage Manager Cross
Generational Update Utility on SLES 11 systems.

NOTE: Default installs of RHEL4.7 & RHEL4.8 will not automatically run inserted CDs.
In the case of MD3000/i the icon will appear on the screen. Just click on
the icon and then click on the autorun icon in order to launch the MDSM
console menu.
