If you dig through HP's drivers section for the controllers you can find the files
This is the link the 420i
you have the option for the bundle or just the vim. If you get the bundle and look inside the zip you will find the new scsi driver number the pervious user posted. The site also gives install instructions to both. You also have the option of using Vmware Update Manager if you want to install it that way as well.
Hope this helps
JMP300 are you using a new scsi driver or are you simply following what the advisor says to do by downgrading the driver?
From the advisory: Until this has been corrected in a future version of the hpsa driver (targeted for mid-June 2014), the out-of-memory condition can be avoided by downgrading to
HP Smart Array Controller Driver (hpsa) Version 5.0.0-44.1 (ESXi 5.0 and ESXi 5.1) or Version 184.108.40.206-1 (ESXi 5.5).
Oh I'm not the one with the problem, the pervious post was stating they couldn't find the driver files, I was simply supplying the links for the person to point them into the right direction. It will take a little more digging on the HP site to find the older versions of the drivers. The link provided was the latest ones released by HP. If these are wrong I applogise.
Sure thing JPM300 that is why I asked. Like I said I opened tickets with VMware and HP and HP said to downgrade back to scsi-hpsa-220.127.116.11-1OEM.518.104.22.1688611.x86_64.vib which is in the hpsa-5.5.0-1287942.zip driver from the HP website. The problem like you pointed out is if you click on the hpsa it recommends you to update to the latest version which has the memory leak. I told HP they need to remove this message so as not to confuse people. Instead you click on that driver version, then click on the previous version in order to download the version I have listed above.
Thanks' for the posts I hade the same issue.
HP has released a new driver version where they claim that they have fixed this memory leak issue, 22.214.171.124-1OEM.5126.96.36.1991820
Here is a link to the driver.
Anyone else run into an issue where Update Manager shows the update as Not Applicable?
I'm having the same issue here. Found this post while searching for a way to work around it...
It crashed again last night so I went ahead and forced the install via the command line. esxcli software vib update -v /tmp/scsi-hpsa-188.8.131.52-1OEM.5184.108.40.2061820.x86_64.vib
I have installed the driver via CLI, will report after few days about the result
I have installed the driver via cli on 6 servers and I have no longer errors in my logs. And the environment has been stable for a week.
HP released the new ISOs for 5.5 and 5.5U1 that come with the patched driver.
Release Date: 2014-06-17
Build Number: 1746974-5.72A.3
Having the same issue where the hpsa -60 driver update is showing as "Not applicable" in VUM. Anyone find the cause?
If you have the vSphere Update Manager installed, there are 2 download sources that you can add for the HP bundles and drivers. In Admin View -> Configuration -> Download Settings -> Add Download Source:
http://vibsdepot.hp.com/index.xml for HP bundles
http://vibsdepot.hp.com/index-drv.xml for HP drivers
My servers patched successfully this way.
