    Thank you for your reply, I learned a lot about the update. I have a problem. How to read versions of the esm and exp on my ds4300. In the log I have information about the firmware, nvsram, DRIVES firmware. but there is no information about the exp and esm. How can I get this information?

    Hi Krzysztof,

    it means that there is no any storage expansion enclosures (EXP) attached to your DS4300 (ESM is part of EXP).
