How to Downgrade HP MSA70 from 2.28 to 2.18 connected to a P812 Controller

I have a HP MSA70 storage array connected to a  P812 controller.

The MSA70 is running firmware 2.28 which is not supposed to be used when connected to the P812 controller, only when connected to a MSA2300 contorller.

The ONLY firmware updates I can find on HP.com are to update the firmware WHEN connected to a MSA2300 controller, etc.  Nothing for when it's connected to a P812.

How do I go about doing this??

What version are you looking  for?  2.18, 2.16 are at http://tinyurl.com/plage7v . The maintenance DVD probably has the right one too since it's for ProLiants rather than for re-badged Dot Hill SANs.

CP010425.scexe does not work with the P812 as the HBA?

I could quite believe that from experience, you might have to borrow a P400 or similar card that's about the same age as the enclosure for it to work with the update CD.

You use CP010425.scexe with the firmware update DVD which just happens to be Linux.
