Pinned topic DS4000 - recommend firmware upgrade sequence: once forever

‏2011-01-07T13:49:02Z |
Hello,

According to upgrade documents, firmware upgrade sequence for DS4000/DS5000 is following:
1. Storage Manager (obvious)
2. Controller Code
3. ESMs
4. Drives

however, people on this forum suggest to reverse last three, i.e to go for:
2. Drives
3. ESMs
4. Controller Code

As far as I understand this suggestion when someone is DOWNGRADING firmware, I am not convinced it makes sense (or difference) when one UPGRADEs.
So, lets solve it once forever - is there any point in reversing the sequence if you are going for a newer firmware?

Cheers,
Jonathan

    This is kind of funny.

    I've always upgraded firmware in the following order and never had any issues. (Besides the firmware itself.)
    Drives
    Controllers
    ESM
