They came from a dell server/equal logic and I'm struggling to get Storage Spaces Direct working so my last ditch effort is to update the firmware.

I downloaded the dell utility but I'm not running it in a dell server so it fails. I tried the cli utility but also failed, I found this blog: EBLEND IT: Flash Dell Firmware into Seagate Generic Drives (ST3450856SS to HS11 Firmware update, maybe others) but it's the opposite problem. The ISO doesn't boot :(

The Seagate site doesn't have seem to have firmware for the drive, but I'd love to get some generic firmware on here if possible. I have 6 of these 4TB drives

Unfortunately since it's OEM drive Seagate doesn't offer on their site, tried yours but it failed:
