Upgrading the Controller Firmware in ESXi

Upgrading the Controller Firmware in ESXi

Operation Scenario

You can upgrade the controller firmware when a new version is released.


Before upgrading the firmware, check that:

  • Stop or exit the ES3000 V3 SSD applications or services.
  • The firmware upgrade does not damage data on SSDs. However, you are advised to back up important data on SSDs.
  • You have downloaded the firmware package to the server, and verified the package integrity.
  • You have uploaded the controller firmware file ES3000V3_FW_2.43.bin to the server.


  1. Log in to the OS as an administrator or a member of the administrator group.
  2. Run the following command to query the SSD controller (such asnvme0) firmware version:

    hioadm updatefw -d nvme0

    The command output contains the following controller firmware version:

    slot version activation
    1 1.20 
    2 1.20 next
    3 1.20 current
    The version number to the left of next indicates the version that takes effect after the next reset. The version number to the left of current indicates the current version in use.

  3. Navigate to the folder where the controller firmware is stored, for example, /tmp.

    You can use an absolute path or a relative path when upgrading the driver. If you do not perform this step, you must enter an absolute path in the command in the next step.

  4. Upgrade the controller firmware.

    hioadm updatefw -d nvme0 -f ES3000V3_FW_2.43.bin

  5. Enter y and press Enter.
  6. After the upgrade, run the reboot command to restart the OS.
  7. Run the following command to check whether the SSD device controller firmware is upgraded:

    hioadm updatefw -d nvme0

    • If yes, no further action is required.
    • If no, go to 8.

  8. Contact Huawei technical support for help.
