Bulletin: Some ProLiant Servers - Critical Solid State Drive Firmware Update REQUIRED for Certain Drive Models
NOTICE: The information in this document, including products and software versions, is current as of the Release Date. This document is subject to change without notice.

Release Date: 2015-04-23

Last Updated: 2015-04-23


IMPORTANT : The firmware updated described below is considered a critical fix and is required to prevent the issue detailed below. HP strongly recommends immediate application of this critical fix. Neglecting to perform the required action could leave the server in an unstable condition, which could potentially result in data corruption. By disregarding this notification and not performing the recommended resolution, the customer accepts the risk of incurring future related errors.

A new firmware version has been released for certain Solid State Drive (SSD) models installed in any of the ProLiant servers listed in the Scope section below.

Included in the new drive firmware is a critical fix for a data integrity issue. Based on the evaluation of the issue, there is a very low probability of occurrence. To date, HP is not aware of any HP customer that has experienced this issue. However, as part of HP's ongoing commitment to quality, HP recommends updating the firmware of SSDs identified in this Bulletin to HPD1 (or later) at the earliest convenience.

When this issue occurs, data that is written to the drive is accurate, but when the data is read back from the drive, additional zeroes are incorporated, causing the data to be incorrectly read. This issue is more likely to occur on a newly formatted drive, or on a drive that has had very little data written to it.


Any of the ProLiant servers listed in Platforms Affected section below and configured with any of the following Solid State Drives (SSDs) running firmware version HPD0 attached to any of the following:

  • HP Apollo 6000 Chassis
  • HP D2700 Disk Enclosure
  • HP D3700 Enclosure
  • HP MSA 2040 SAN Storage


Update all SSDs listed in the Scope section to drive firmware version HPD1 (or later). Instructions for deploying the firmware are included in the download package.

  1. Click on the following link:


  2. Select "Drivers and Downloads."
  3. Enter the drive model under the "Find My Product" field.
  4. Click on the drive model and then select the appropriate operating system.
  5. Under "Firmware," Select Firmware Version HPD1 (or later).
