- My Lab Environment:
1 x HPE 3PAR StoreServ 7200c (two nodes, 3PAR OS 3.2.1)
1 x VSP 4.4 (Virtual Service Processor)
Before you 3PAR OS upgrade, you must check the compatibility of running SP and new 3PAR OS in HP SPOCK. When you finished upgrade pre-check and the 3PAR OS loaded to the Service Processor(SP). You can login to SPOCC and start the 3PAR OS upgrade.
You can select two upgrade methods: Online 0r Offline.
Online: (HPE Recommended) Update is installed to all nodes one at a time. Nodes are rebooted one at a time automatically.
Offline: All hosts connected to the storage system must be shut down before the update is installed.
It has some valiaditon for each component before the 3PAR OS upgrade.
Then it starts the OS upgrade.
When the OS upgrade is successfuly completed, you can see the status displays “Updated successed”.
The last task is Cage and Drive Firmware Upgrade, you can upgrade on either cli mode or SPOCC.
After the final task is finished, the 3PAR OS upgrade 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 is successfully completed.
