comment How to upgrade the firmware of HP SAS expander card without Smart Array controller or Proliant Server?
re: This 6G HP SAS expander might be made EOL because of the release of newer (and more expensive) 12G HP SAS expander cards 727250-B21 [DL380 Gen9] and 769635-B21 [ML350 Gen9]. As long as there are PCI express x8 slots in the (ProLiant) server, the older 6G HP SAS expander cards will operate.

@ewwhite I can't weight the involved risks. Though it might be that in the background the HP tools are doing the same thing. Actually this procedure was suggested by Robert Elliott from HP Server Storage (of course without any warranties). Regarding end-of-life, I don't see being EOL mentioned on h10057.www1.hp.com/ecomcat/hpcatalog/specs/provisioner/99/… Having a look at the photo you can even see a new layout PCB design: the external SFF-8088 connector is now made an internal SFF-8087 connector.
