I have four Intel-SSD-DC-P3700-Series-1_6TB-12-Height-PCIe-3_0-20nm-MLC which my company purchased from HP in two Proliant DL380 Gen9 servers. If I run the tool isdct from Intel it prints out the following:
isdct show -intelssd 0
- IntelSSD CVFT5225005S1P6DGN -
FirmwareUpdateAvailable: Please contact your Intel representative about firmware update for this drive.
ProductFamily: Intel SSD DC P3700 Series
If I try to do an update it prints out the following:
isdct load -intelssd 0

Error: Please contact your Intel representative about firmware update for this drive.
I contacted HP and my contact told me this:
HPE does not provide any drivers, FW or utilities for the Intel workload accelerator cards.
The question I have is what must I do to get the new Firmware for these cards?
The operating system used is Redhat 7.2 with a kernel.org kernel 4.4.1.
Many thanks in advance for any help resolving this issue.
Please bear in mind that proprietary SSDs have their firmware provided by the OEM due to the possible modifications they apply to the drive. That is the reason as to why you were pointed to Dell* as their firmware are the right ones for your drive.
