Power predictive failure after upgrade OA firmware

Hi!

Our oldest c7000 enclosure is still running with four bl460c Blades loaded in it. I want to synchonize the firmware with a new c7000 enclosure.

So i started updating the iLO's of our blades to version 1.80, after that i upgraded our OA to version 2.52.

Now, all the powerunits in the updated OA show "predictive failure". I read i should upgrade the powerunits to version 3.4D, but where is this update located? All i can find is an Online rompack for Windows 2003 but we run VMWare ESX on our Blades.

I found an unattended firmware upgrade CD (bbfirmware-1.60-0.zip), this CD said everything is up to date.

Anyone here that can help me out?

Spoken to HP Support, they said this is a known issue and all power supplies needs to be replaced.

Problem Solved.

This is the actual issue.

And..

The power 3.4D firmware update is found under the section just labeled "firmware" on the drivers and firmware page.

Re: Power predictive failure after upgrade OA firmware

Yeah correct. It took me a while to find out what was wrong since no error message appeared in the OA. Funny thing was that an error message did appear in the show_all log.

I went to https://h30090.www3.hp.com/pcc-CPS/ to get a tool that extracts the information needed and some new power devices are on it's way now.
