Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the controller

Hello,
i'm using MSA1000 with secure path and 2nodes MCSC cluster. The last weekend we did some disk array modification on the storageworks. We removed, created new physical, logical arrays. Recently I noticed degradation of accelerator of one MSA 1000 controller from System management homepage on the nodes . There is Status Temporarily Disabled, Error Code Expand in Progress. It's true the we did expansion on the storage last weekend too. However HP Array configurator doesn't show expanding activity for the storage.

The other controller is healthy.

How can I get rid of Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the Controller?
Thank u in advance.

Re: Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the controller

There could be several things...If you did a full restart (also the MSA) and there is still no difference, it is possible that either MSA firmware must be updated or that you actualy have some problems with accelerrator.. Do you also get battery warnings for it?

Re: Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the controller

Thank you for your response. The battery is healthy also. As the storage and the nodes is our main production servers I need to prepare steps with minimal impact on the system (quick steps). What steps would you advise me to do firstly, in which order. Are u sure the restart helps. Thanks in advance

Re: Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the controller

Jan, you could not be shure when we talk about modern technology :-) Seriously, Accelerator is disabled when you do expansion... if the expansion proces is finished ( it can take a lot of time when you have production running on the same disks and it also doesn't start until you have some trafic on those disks (I know it sounds stupid but...). As it looks it is possible that your expansion is not finished yet? A short restart could do the trick, but make shure you tried everything else before that...

Ok. I tried many things without success. Restart servers and MSA1000 have helped. Thanks.

Re: Temporarily Disabled Status for Accelerator of the controller

Hi,
I have an MSA20 with Accelerator temporarily disabled but with low battery power (wasn't doing any expanding). You asked the question was there a problem with the battery so I thought you may have an idea what my problem is...

Cheers,
Rob.
