(sorry for the attribution depth, deleted the original message).
Anyway, i have no H800 series controllers yet, so i'm just throwing
this out, in case it applies, but the PERC5/6
can be updated via MegaCLI with:
MegaCli -AdpFwFlash -f filename [-NoSigChk] [-NoVerChk] -aN|-a0,1,2|-aALL
I'd extract the DUP kit below with:
RAID_FRMW_LX_R269683.BIN --extract ./FOO
and look in FOO/payload for a .img or .fw or whatever file to
If anyone does try this, finds that it works/doesn't, please respond.
