The Firmware Upgrade option in the StorNext GUI or available in the Service Menu (for G300 and Xcellis Workflow Extender systems), allows you to perform a firmware upgrade on Quantum Appliances. Depending on the StorNext firmware upgrade version being applied, the firmware upgrade includes updates to the firmware/drivers for the appliance hardware (if applicable), the server OS (if applicable) and StorNext software.
Note: For QXS chassis used in Xcellis Workflow Director, and Artico systems, the QXS controller firmware is not upgraded during the firmware upgrade process. QXS firmware upgrades must be done separately, according to the firmware upgrade instructions documented in the QXS Release Notes. See www.quantum.com/qxshybriddocs.
See the Quantum Appliances InfoHub > Upgrade Firmware for instructions on how to apply the firmware upgrade to your system.
