This is a firmware and BIOS upgrade for the PERC 3/DCP. This upgrades the Firmware to version 1w61 and the BIOS to version 3.17. This firmware upgrade is only recommended for users who connect to PowerVault storage enclosures. It is important to back up data before performing this upgrade. It is possible that the controller might be rendered unusable should a power loss occur during the upgrade process. If this occurs, Dell will replace if necessary on a next business day basis. For best enclosure management support, PERC 3/DCP users should also upgrade their RAID management utility to PERC Console Plus 5.00c, Dell version A02
