I have a Proliant DL360 G6 with both a P410i smart array controller (with hdds attached) and a P212/256 smart array controller (with a HP MSL2024 Tape library attached)

Since upgrading to firmware version 6.60 I have noticed significant through put reduction on the P212 with the tape library.

I am wanting to downgrade the firmware on the P212 to see if the update was the problem.

I have the previous firmware exe install file (v6.40b) but when I run it, it is going to automatically downgrade both controllers.
Is it possible (with a command line switch?) to select which controller to downgrade?

Setup updating both

I don't know a command line method but there's a simple way around it. Downgrade both, remove P212, upgrade again, put P212 back in.

After firmware downgrade still slow tape - oh well had to eliminate as a possibility

Will upgrade them both again as some stage.
