Updating firmware

HPE recommends you to initiate a firmware update from HPE SSMC when you introduce a device or replace disk drives. The operation time depends on the hardware changes included. You can monitor the task progress in the Activity screen. You cannot update the firmware when an OS update is in progress.

To update firmware on the selected storage system, do the following:

  1. On the main menu, select Storage Systems > Systems.
  2. On the list pane, select the storage system, and then click Update firmware in the Actions menu.

    The time required for updating firmware depends on the changes to current system hardware.

    The Update Firmware dialog which includes a confirmation request opens.

    You can hover over fields to display tooltips.

  3. Click Yes, update firmware to start the action, or click Cancel if you are not sure about the update.
