Re: Disk Firmware upgrade failed with advisory lock error

Hello Kimberly,

This can happen. You have to remove the lock before you can try again.

For all operating systems, issue the armmgr â b command to break each advisory lock.

armmgr -b CreateLun array_id
armmgr -b FwDownload array_id
armmgr -b Security array_id
armmgr -b Select array_id
armmgr -b PassThru array_id
armmgr -b HostPort array_id

Note: In most cases you will see a message indicating that the lock could not be broken. This is normal. It means that the lock was not set. It is not an error.
