Command for updating disk firmware

You need to use the disk_fw_update command from the storage system console to update firmware on all disks or a on specified disk on a storage system.

The disk_fw_update command updates disks for which firmware files are present in the /etc/disk_fw directory and which need to be updated. It does not update other disks.

The disk_fw_update command is applicable to SCSI, Fibre Channel, SATA, and SAS disks.

For more information, see the disk_fw_update(1) man page.

Attention: This command makes disks inaccessible for up to two minutes, so network sessions using the storage system should be terminated before running the command. This is particularly true for CIFS sessions, which otherwise are terminated while this command executes.

This command overrides any background disk firmware update that is in progress.
