Intel® RAID Controllers contain a flash part that stores the firmware portion of code required for the operation of the controller. The firmware may be updated to correct an errata or to add features to the operation of the product. In addition to normal flash recovery, this procedire directly address updating RAID controllers from firmware versions 5.x or less to version 6.x or higher. The flash procedure requires moving a jumper on the RAID controller to the flash update/recovery position. The update will not proceed if this jumper is not moved to the flash update/recovery position prior to performing the update. Following the update, the jumper should be moved back to its original "normal" position.
Please read the instructions completely before updating the firmware to v5.x or less to v6.x. If unsure of the steps, please contact Intel® Customer Support.
