Drive Firmware for SAS Drives

Since upgrading to firmware 6.0.1 we have one array (ps6000xv) that lists all drives as being out of date with its current firmware (XRH7). I have looked on the equallogic support website and cannot find a drive firmware other then for SATA disks.

Should this SAS drive firmware be available for this array somewhere?

Thanks Joe. That got me to the necessary SAS drive firmware. I notice it is dated Sept 2011. Is that the newest?

Okay, here's another problem. so i began the process and accidently closed the terminal window. when i go to rerun the process it stats another copy of the process is already running. how do i kill the first process or what is the timeout period?

You need to open a support case to resolve that.
