Update Firmware on Microsemi SAS Controller

This is a short overview on how to update the Firmware on my Microsemi 1100-16i HBA (Update on your own risk). I don’t recommend updating if you don’t have any problems but my Firmware was almost 3 years old and i didn’t have any data on the disks yet.

First Download the Firmware and install the maxView Storage Manager. Then start it and LogIn with the local Administrator of the system. On the website select the controller on the left side. Select Update Firmware in the System section. Select flashing options and the new Firmware. Restart the system when the update is finished.
