FC60 Write Cache Active not enabled

Hello,

I have an old FC60 in a development environment that is showing a Ready status but is under performing.

One thing i have noticed in amdsp is that WCE and CME is enabled on each lun but neither WCA or CMA are showing a cross against them when i would expect them to. I have looked on amcfg, ammgr and amutil but see no options. The controllers show a good status and i can see i have 256mb cache. Why is Write Cache Active and Cache Mirror Active not being utilised?

Any ideas or suggestions are very welcome. I am at HP10 and know HP12 is available but this machine isnt under a service contract but is this a firmware problem?

Cheers

Ps - the bbu is at good status

Hi,

WCA or CMA are not active could be due to your battery unit is charging or not working. please check its status. Don't think this is a firmware problem.

Re: FC60 Write Cache Active not enabled

Hi

Apologies for the delay, never a quiet moment. Attached is the amdsp -a if it is any help.
