Configuring A3550 Model 20

I have several A3550AZ Model 20 arrays whereby I always get the message "could not fine a valid flare image" from gridmgr. It sees A0
and A3 at 9.25.0.

If I install a A3232A storage processor I can come up fully into gridmgr and can configure luns with no problem.

How do I communicate with this array using the new style SP's? I have tried several SP's with the same results.

Thanks,

Ben

Hello,

You have to upgrade the microcode revision in order to see the SP620s.

It is recommended to get an HP engineer to do this.

Typically you would get HP engineer to load the flare code onto the database disk. You would have to boot up the Nike from another working disk that has the flare code first.

"could not fine a valid flare image" from gridmgr. It sees A0 and A3 at 9.25.0.

> Flare revision 9.25.0 or 9.26.07 is dedicated to SP320, 9.55.01 or 9.56.07 for SP620 respectively so you need to load flare rev either 9.55.01 or 9.56.07 in the disk array.

If you have a model 20 (SP620) nearby , pull out one of the database drives, that is, A0,B0,C0,A3 that already contain flarecode and put it into your array, therefore, your disk array will be able to boot from that drive with no error.
Once FC30 is up, it automatically copies its flarecode to several disk drives called database drive.

Hope this helps,

Re: Configuring A3550 Model 20

you've been moving disks around....

or have moved hardware around..


Do your controllers have a switch? enable/disable on the back of them?

What is the PROM code
1.73 or 8.02?

Later,

It works for me (tm)
