Pinned topic DS4500 Firmware

‏2014-06-02T10:10:51Z |

I have just come across an old IBM DS4500 (Fastt 900) which I want to use for a lab environment.

It currently powers on and I can see all the existing Luns on the disks and I can use it as is.

I want to connect to the storage manager to see exactly how it has been configured and what's going on with it.

I managed to get storage manager 9 and try to connect but receive an error about how the controller firmware is too old to connect.

Current Firmware:

Controller firmware:06.60.22.00

Controller appware: 06.60.22.00

Can someone point me in the right direction to either an old version of storage manager or the latest available firmware and how I can upgrade it without access to storage manager…

I seem to keep going round in circles on the IBM website as it's such an old product, I have serials which I presume should entitle me to download the latest updates for it?

Rob

    Thanks Guys. Managed to get connected with the above link.

    Resolved all the errors and now just need to update the firmware.. But I cant find the latest one. Finding information on it is very difficult.

     

    Currently Im on 06.60.22.00 Can some one point me in the right direction or at least tell me what the latest firmware is?
