 +====== Mark5B firmware upgrade ======
 +After upadting the mark5B software (following the instructions found at http://​​tech/​vlbi/​mark5/​downloads/​Mark5BUpdate.pdf) problems were still seen using scan_check on the 6 TB SATA drives. To correct this, I ipgraded the Mark5B firmware from 12.41 to 15.30, following Dan Smythe'​s instructions. Several environment variables had to be set and have been included in oper's .bashrc file. 
 +''​export STREAMSTOR_BIB_PATH=/​usr/​local/​src/​streamstor/​linux/​bib''​ \\ 
 +''​export SS=/​usr/​local/​streamstor/​linux'' ​ \\ 
 +''​export PATH=$PATH:/​usr/​local/​bin/​streamstor/''​
 +Once these were set, the flash_upgrade was carried out by 
 +''​cd /​usr/​local/​src/​streamstor/​linux/​lib/​gcc_v3/​util/''​ \\ 
 +This will need to be done for each of the mark5B recorders.
