Storagetek L180 L700 Firmware

Storagetek L180 L700 Firmware

Hi Experts,

I have a Storagetek L700e which is currently running FW 3.11.02. I'm trying to install some HP LTO4 tape
drives but they show up as "Not Communicate" I suspect this is down to the low rev FW.

I've searched MOS and google but I cant find any newer FW, I think I need 3.18 to be able to use LTO4 Tape

Has anybody got 3.18? or can anybody point me in the right direction to where I can find it pls?

Any help would be much appreciated.


RE: Storagetek L180 L700 Firmware

I think I have 3.17 - will confirm Monday...

Thanks TechyG, Much appreciated.

Hi Shaun150uk

I have 3.17.03...

I think you will have to be on 3.15.02... instead of jumping from 3.11.02

RE: Storagetek L180 L700 Firmware

Thanks TechyG, I think I have another controller with 3.15 on, any chance I can get a copy of 3.17?

Many thanks
