1.Obtain the LSI9460-8i array card firmware from the H3C official website, generally you can obtain the latest firmware version,

Official website download address:https://www.h3c.com/cn/BizPortal/DownLoadAccessory/DownLoadAccessoryFilt.aspx.

The detailed steps are as follows:

(1) Press the F2 key in the main interface of ESXi to enter the configuration interface, and enter the password of the root account; 

(2) Select the Troubleshooting Options menu to enable the SSH service and ESXi Shell function; 

(3) Log in to the Vphere Web client interface through the management IP, and upload the fw file and the storcli tool installation package of the corresponding system version to the /tmp path;

 (4) On the main interface of ESXi, press Alt+F1 key combination to enter the system command line interface (to exit the command line interface, press Alt+F2 key combination);

 (5) Log in with the administrator user; 

(6) Execute the following installation command for the storcli installation package in Vib format: esxcli software vib install –v /tmp/<name>.vib --no-sig-check (here <name> is the file name of the vib installation package) The offline_bundle zip format storcli installation package executes the following installation command: esxcli software vib install –d/tmp/<name>.zip --no-sig-check (here <name> is the file name of the offline_bundle zip installation package) (Note: After storcli is installed, the absolute path of ESX 6.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli, and the absolute path of ESX 7.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli64/storcli64) 

(7) Run the storcli tool to confirm that the adapter to be upgraded can query and record the Ctl (controller) field of the adapter: ESX 6.x systems: /opt/lsi/storcli show ESX 7.x systems: /opt/lsi/storcli64/storcli64 show

(8) If upgrading the firmware, enter and upgrade the firmware command: /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli /cx download file=/tmp/<name>.rom (here <name> is the fw file name, x is the controller number) 

To downgrade or flat update firmware, enter and upgrade firmware commands: /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli /cx download file=/tmp/<name>.rom noverchk (here <name> is the fw file name, x is the controller number)

 (Note: The absolute path of the ESX 6.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli, and the absolute path of the ESX 7.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli64/storcli64. Please replace the command according to the actual situation when using it)

 (9) After the update is successful, restart the system to take effect; 

(10) After entering the system, run the /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli /cx show all (x is the controller number) command to check that the firmware version of the adapter is the target version, which means the upgrade is successful. 

(Note: The absolute path of the ESX 6.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli/storcli, and the absolute path of the ESX 7.x system is /opt/lsi/storcli64/storcli64. Please replace the command according to the actual situation when using it)
