    I'm trying to flash the firmware on an SAS 9200 16e from Version 5 to Version 19. I cannot get SAS2flsh to read the binary file. When trying to update the firmware I always get:

    ERROR: Could not open file 9200-16e_it.bin.

    It then says I have a syntax error and says I should use -f x where x is the file name.

    The command I am using is:

    SAS2Flsh.exe -o -f 9200-16e_it.bin

    Which I am pretty sure is the correct syntax.

    Any help would be appreciated. Been at this a while today.

    If doing the same thing and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity, then I've definitely gone INSANE!!

    You are on DOS and possibly running into 8.3 file naming limitation.

    Do a DIR *.bin and see what the file name is. I'm guessing something like 9200-1~1.bin

    Thanks for the quick response. Yes, using the DOS version. You are right it is truncated, should I change it to something shorter like 9200.bin and try that? Or use the truncated file name?

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
    Used the truncated name and worked perfectly!
    Wish I had asked this about 8 hours ago.
