VA7400 Firmware update problem

Hi all,

I'd like to upgrade the Firmware of the array controller (HP16).In the procedure, they tell me to turn the optimization policy off with this command : armmgr -o off

But the status of the array is "Optimization in progress, Disk scrubbing in progress". I do not understand what it stands for, 'cause I'm french...:)

Re: VA7400 Firmware update problem

When it's scrubbing the disks, it means that it is moving the data from RAID 1_0 to RAID5DP.
That's a background process for optimizing storage capacity and performance.

It should stop after a while when you didn't write any data to the array.
You can stop scrubbing manually with the command armmgr -p disable

Good luck,
