M710s nvme SSD flash under Linux fails

Hi all,

 

this is a Linux only maschine and I'm trying to flash the internal SSD to latest firmware:

M710s, 16GB RAM, Ubuntu 18.10 with kernel 5.0.0-050000rc5-generic

SSD SAMSUNG MZVLW256HEHP-000L7 with FIRMWARE 4L7QCXB7

nvme version 1.7

 

I have downloaded fwsddt03.exe - extracted with innoexctract:

$ ls -l
insgesamt 9176
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rtraut rtraut 1048576 Nov 16 12:50 5L1QCXB7.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rtraut rtraut 1048576 Jan 20  2018 5L7QCXB7_NF_ENC.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rtraut rtraut 1048576 Jan 20  2018 7L7QCXY7_NF_ENC.bin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rtraut rtraut 2584239 Mär 17  2017 nvmeredrive_v2_2_3_3_x86
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rtraut rtraut 3664896 Feb  8  2018 RaidFWUpdate_V1_1_6.exe
$ sudo nvme id-ctrl /dev/nvme0 | grep fr
fr        : 4L7QCXB7
frmw      : 0x16
$ sudo nvme fw-download /dev/nvme0 --fw=5L1QCXB7.bin
Firmware download success
$ sudo nvme fw-commit /dev/nvme0 --slot=0 --action=2
NVME Admin command error:FIRMWARE_SLOT: The firmware slot indicated is invalid or read only. This error is indicated if the firmware slot exceeds the number supported(2106)
$ sudo nvme fw-commit /dev/nvme0 --slot=0 --action=1
NVME Admin command error:FIRMWARE_IMAGE: The firmware image specified for activation is invalid and not loaded by the controller(2107)

Does anybody know why it fails?

Am I using the wrong firmware for the drive?

 

Thx

Rainer

Betreff: M710s nvme SSD flash under Linux fails

I'm getting closer:

 

$ sudo nvme fw-commit /dev/nvme0 --slot=1 --action=2
Success activating firmware action:2 slot:1, but firmware requires conventional reset

But after reboot the firmware is still the same old one:

$ sudo nvme id-ctrl /dev/nvme0 | grep fr
fr        : 4L7QCXB7
frmw      : 0x16

And I cannot activate it like the manpage example:

$ sudo echo 1 > /sys/class/nvme/nvme0/device/reset 
bash: /sys/class/nvme/nvme0/device/reset: Keine Berechtigung
