StorSimple 8k series software upgrade from version 0.2 to version 1.2 – phase 1 of 3


Originally published on 9 November, 2015

See upgrade process overview for important warnings and pre-requisites.

Phase 1 – Software update:

This phase takes about 1 hour. In this phase we will:

  • Establish remote Powershell to the StorSimple device using this Powershell script. You should see output similar to Update-30
  • Download the bits
    The bits are available for download from KB3063418 by browsing to http://catalog.update.microsoft.com and searching for StorSimple. However, this requires Internet Explorer browser and a number of add-ons. In the script I’ve saved the bits to my OneDrive and the script downloads them from there. Update-31
  • Update the device software
    This runs the Start-HcsHotFix cmdlet on the device. The update will apply to the Active Controller which will reboot, then the other controller will be automatically updated as well.
    Allow about 25 minutes for the process to complete.
    Expect to see email alerts as the Controllers are rebooted and patched.
