How-to Flash Dell Perc H310 with IT Firmware To Change Queue Depth from 25 to 600 | ESX Virtualization[web search]
“megarec -writesbr 0 sbrempty.bin” and “megarec -cleanflash 0” run successfully.
(I have to mention, that I had to reboot the server after “writesbr”. Without reboot “cleanflash” failed with this error message “Flash is not programmable”)
After reboot “sas2flsh -o -f 6gbpsas.fw” failed with error message “Firmware Download Failed!”.
I tried to flash the card in a HP DL380G7 and in a HP DL380G5 without success.
Do you have any suggestion what is wrong here?
The zip download (http://www45.zippyshare.com/v/51016808/file.html) has everything you need to get to the P16 version of the firmware and from there I just went and grabbed the P20 version from the Avago website (http://www.avagotech.com/products/server-storage/host-bus-adapters/sas-9211-8i#downloads) and grabbed the latest firmware.
There are batch files in the zip download that automate the process, but if you edit the batch files, you can see exactly what is happening and it really does work.
