Product details and specifications

StoreOnce software update RPM`s provide new features, functional and quality improvements and defect fixes. In addition, they also contain the recommended component firmware for the StoreOnce appliance.

It is recommended that StoreOnce appliances are kept up to date with the latest software.

For more information about the content of each release, check the release notes for each update. These can be found on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Information Library website and scrolling down to, or filtering on, the ‘Release Notes’.



The final stage of the software update reboots the appliance to complete the update process.

The complete update process, including component firmware updates, may take up to 3 hours for a StoreOnce single-node appliance (e.g. StoreOnce 4700) and could take several more hours for a fully expanded StoreOnce multi-node appliance (e.g. StoreOnce 6500). It is important to ensure that there are no backup or restore operations scheduled to take place during this period.

OS Conversion Software Upgrade

The 3.13.x to 3.16.2 software upgrade (P9L02-10544.rpm) provides a major upgrade of the underlying StoreOnce Operating System. This type of software upgrade is called an OS conversion upgrade. It differs from a typical StoreOnce software upgrade by using a separate, unique 3.13.x to 3.16.2 OS Conversion upgrade RPM file, and by requiring the user to perform an intermediary step to download and save, securely, an automatically generated saved_config.tgz file from the StoreOnce System before restarting the software upgrade process.

Note: The 3.13.x to 3.16.2 OS Conversion Software Upgrade RPM (P9L02-10544.rpm) is only applicable to the StoreOnce 6500 and cannot be used to upgrade StoreOnce B6200, Mixed B6200-6500, or 6600 Systems. 

StoreOnce B6200 and Mixed B6200-6500 Systems:
