Problems with OA 4.11?

I recently upgraded all 6 of my C7000s from OA 4.01 to OA 4.11. 

 

A week later, two of them, at different times seem to have lost access to the blades (I have 16 in each) and then reacquires it back within 10 seconds.

The alert mail shows this for each blade:

EVENT (30 Mar 13:31): Blade in bay 8 status has changed to: Failed.

 

Blade, "CUTTER", has changed from OK to Failed.

Only to get it right back

 

EVENT (30 Mar 13:32): Blade in bay 8 status has changed to: OK.

 

Blade, "CUTTER", has changed from Failed to OK.

 

This happened again this weekend,  once per blade server, a couple hours apart. Its always the same bladecenters.

The individual blades stay up.  This seems to be an ILO connectivity issue, but I don't know why. Any ideas and help is greatly appreciated.

I can tell you that, since I did the update through Oneview to SPP 2014.02 on my blade enclosure, I have had similar things twice in 3 weeks... No further messages behind. 3 Gen8 blades in the enclosure all updated to latest SPP... If I receive the message again I will post the exact information...

Re: Problems with OA 4.11?

I am seeing the same thing on the two chassis worth of BL465c Gen8 blades that I've updated to 2014.02.  I left the OA at 4.01.  It looks like it's something with the 1.40 Firmware.

HP tells me that I have to run SP2014.02 on all my blades and my problems will go away... Humm.

Stuart,

 

My entire enclosure is running 2014.02 (OA, VC and blades) and I see these issues as well....
