    Expander Backplane Firmware Update Failure - S5000PSL w/ SRCSASRB raid


      Hi all,

      I've prett much pulled out every strand of hair on my head trying to get the firmware updated on my AXX6DRV3GEXP expander.  Currently it is sitting with fw 2.02 which may or maynot be causing some of our issues with this server.  So I want to flash the firmware up to 2.14 (current version) but keep getting errors.

      Via Dos - attempting to go from 2.02 to 2.05 - Update Failed and it seems to hang at the unlocking the front panel notification.  I've updated the Motherboard to the latest BIOS 98, BMC 65, FRUSDR 48 update available.  The backplane is connected via the Primary HSBP connection.  I've tried 2.05, 2.06, 2.12, 2.14 all fail.  I know there have been several postings about a similar situation with the S3200SHC board, but i haven't come across anything similar to my situation.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
