Description

The Update-StorageFirmware cmdlet updates the firmware on a storage device with the specified firmware image.

You can also use Update-StorageFirmware to load firmware that is already on the device but in a non-active slot. The update operation consists of a download step and an activation step that are both performed by this cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Update a physical disk

PS C:\>Get-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName "PhysicalDisk0" | Update-StorageFirmware -ImagePath "C:\Users\Contoso\Desktop\Image.bin" -SlotNumber 0

This command uses the Get-PhysicalDisk cmdlet to get a physical disk, and then uses the pipeline operator to pass the disk to Update-StorageFirmware, which updates the physical disk with the firmware in Image.bin.

Example 2: Activate a firmware image in a different slot

PS C:\>Get-PhysicalDisk -FriendlyName "PhysicalDisk1" | Update-StorageFirmware -SlotNumber 2

This command uses the Get-PhysicalDisk cmdlet to get a physical disk, and then uses the pipeline operator to pass the disk to Update-StorageFirmware, which activates the firmware in slot 2.
