 +====== Update a Perc 6/i adapter ======
 +
 +First thing is to verify you actually have a Perc 6/i
 +
 +<​file>​
 +omreport storage controller
 +</​file>​
 +
 +Then you download the correct Firmware from the Dell Support site. Before you can do the install you will need to ensure a few utils are installed. Otherwise you will not be able to extract the package. ​
 +
 +  rpm stat stty cut fmt tty tar gzip tail rm mkdir mktemp chmod ls basename dirname wc sleep
 +
 +Once you have the above available simply extract the package. In my case the last update I made was to version 6.3.3
 +
 +<​file>​
 +# chmod 755 SAS-RAID_Firmware_3P52K_LN_6.3.3-0002_X00.BIN ​
 +# ./​SAS-RAID_Firmware_3P52K_LN_6.3.3-0002_X00.BIN --extract perc6
 +</​file>​
 +
 +Afterwards you just execute the update script telling is where the new firmware is
 +
 +<​file>​
 +# cd perc6
 +# ./sasdupie -u -s payload/
 +</​file>​
 +
 +When all is done you will see something similar to below
 +
 +<​file>​
 +/​root/​Dell/​perc6/​dupdisneyinstall.sh:​ line 664: /​var/​log/​dell/​disneyinstall.log:​ No such file or directory
 +<?xml version="​1.0"​ encoding="​UTF-8"?><​SVMExecution lang="​en"><​Device vendorID="​1000"​ deviceID="​0060"​ subDeviceID="​1f0b"​ subVendorID="​1028"​ bus="​3"​ device="​0"​ function="​0"​ display="​PERC 6/i Adapter Controller 0"><​Application componentType="​FRMW"​ version="​6.2.0-0013"​ display="​PERC 6/i Adapter Controller 0 Firmware"><​Package version="​6.3.3.0002"/><​SPStatus result="​true"><​Message id="​0">​The operation was successful. </​Message></​SPStatus></​Application></​Device><​RebootRequired>​1</​RebootRequired></​SVMExecution>​
 +</​file>​
 +
 +Notice the "The operation was successful"​ and "<​RebootRequired>​1</​RebootRequired>"​ which tells you that all went well and you need to reboot to get your new firmware running.
 +
 +Enjoy
