EMC iSCSI FW Upgrade with MS iSCSI initiator

  1. Do not try it on a host with disabled iSCSI board
  2. Upgrade all host based iSCSI componenets: MS iSCSI initiator, EMC PowerPath iSCSI, and Novisphere Express Utility (each upgrade will require reboot)
  3. Disconnect iSCSI dedicated cables from the iSCSI dedicated switch (from Hosts site)
  4. Use firefox to load Navispere Express (according EMC IE can be slower), enable pop-ups for iSCSI site.
  5. Update the FW from downloaded zip file (do not extract). The upgrade can take long time in my case 20 min per SP.
