CI858 Firmware version in 800Xa 6.0
I am working in one upgrade 800Xa system 5.0 to 6.0, this aplication have AC800m, CI 854 and CI858 (DriveBus), when I use the remote system (option Show Firmware Information), show me new version for AC800m and CI854, but for CI858 the field appears empty. I need change the firmware for CI858 in this case? If yes, How I change this Firmware? What is the correct version of firmware in this case?
Thanks in advance

The CI858 firmware is available on the 800xA installation media along with all the other firmware in the Control Builder M installation sub directories. Note that CI858 firmware is not installed by default on your 800xA engineering stations.
In this directory you should find a word document describing the update process and a text document with which gives the firmware release information.
AFAIK, You cannot load the CI858 firmware through Control Builder M, but must load it from a Drives engineering station.
As of 800xA version 5.1 Rev E the firmware revision for the CI858 was still 188.8.131.52 dated 17-Sept-2003. Sorry I dont have a version 6 installation media available here to check for SV6, But I would be surprised if the is a firmware upgrade required.
