Hi SnLiu,

 

 

We understand that you want to upgrade the firmware for the Intel® SSD DC P3600 Series.

 

 

We want to inform you that the firmware version you are requesting is an old one, we always recommend to install the latest one. In this case is 8DV101H0 with Bootloader 8B1B0133 as per this https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000017245/memory-and-storage.html article.

 

 

Since you already have the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool please follow the next commands:

 

 

isdct load -intelssd (index of the SSD)

 

 

Please let us know if that works.

 

 

Regards,

Thanks for the reply.

Here is the latest version of the Ihttps://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27144/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Tool?product=87278 ntel® SSD Data Center Tool for VMware*.

In order for you to update the firmware you just need to enter the following command:

isdct load -intelssd (index of the SSD)

I know that tool and I already install on my machine, the question is I can not find the install package for the firmware upgrade.

Finally, I ask DELL support to get the solution for that,the solution is not good, but better than nothing.

Hi SnLiu,

 

 

Thanks for the update.

 

 

Based on the information we found, it seems that the Firmware 8DV1DP01 is an OEM version and belongs to Dell*, reason why the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool does not detect any install package.

 

 

The Firmware 8DV101H0 is for retail versions of the SSD. In this case, we suggest you contact Dell* in order to verify if there is a firmware available for the SSD.

 

 

Regards,
