How to upgrade Smart Array 6402/128 firmware/ROM on non-HP server?

Hi,

Please advice how to flash new firmware/ROM to the new HP Smart Array 6402/128.

It's installed on 3rd-party server and the HP Firmware maintenance CD complains with this message:
'The Firmware CD does not support deployment for this server.
Consult the support matrix on the HP website at
www.hp.com for a complete list of supported servers.'

Thanks in advance,
Andrew.

Andrew,

if you run Windows, did you tried running the Smartcomponent for online F/W upgrade?

i.e. :

Kris,

I didn't try online FW upgrade, because I need to burn only one controller.

Finally, the problem was solved by KISS:

boot not from FW maint CD, then insert in into CD drive and autorun runs right utility.

Thanks anyway for your answer,

Andrew.
