Answer

It depends on SANtricity OS version:
  • If  SANtricity OS version is 11.70 or ealier, use the file ending with _XXXX_000.dlp
  • If  SANtricity OS version is 11.80 or later, use the file ending with _XXXX_000_SIGNED.dlp

For Example: The link of NE02 nevigates to download D_HUH721212AL5204_30603920_NE02_XXXX_000.zip which contains the following two types of disk firmware files.

 D_HUH721212AL5204_30603920_NE02_XXXX_000.dlp
 D_HUH721212AL5204_30603920_NE02_XXXX_000.dlp.sha512
 D_HUH721212AL5204_30603920_NE02_XXXX_000_SIGNED.dlp
 D_HUH721212AL5204_30603920_NE02_XXXX_000_SIGNED.dlp.sha512

Additional Information

Drive Firmware Cryptographic Signing

Drive firmware is cryptographically signed. Signatures are checked during initial download and backed by a CA issued Extended Validation certificate. Drive firmware content is now delivered as a ZIP file, which contains the older non-signed firmware as well as the new signed firmware. The user must chose the appropriate file based on the release version of code that is running on the target system.
