As mentioned in a previous thread, I'm new to LeftHand and have a question regarding firmware. 1) Do I need to upgrade firmware (assuming yes) 2) how do I go about upgrading the P4500 G2 firmware. If it is built on a proliant platform can I boot off the firmware maint CDROM?

But yes, you use the firmware maintenance CD. You can look at the patch list and they will typically link to a firmware upgrade CD for some of the suggested patches. What version of SAN/iQ are you on? Or you can call HP/LHN support and they'll point you in the right direction as well.
For some of the firmware updates, you'll need to drop them on a USB and click the "Add Supplemental" button to import them when you boot to the firmware maintenance CD.
Here's a link to the User Guide for the CD:

but it doesnâ t list any firmware updates for all components (Example iLO). Am I safe to upgrade the iLO from the firmware maintenance CDROM. I would feel more comfortable if they would list it on the above update page.

No worries there. I'm running a number of G2's with the updated iLO if it makes you feel any better.
