MSA P2000 G3 Multiple drives marked as failed

We recently installed a new system 3 shelves all with 2Tb drives. All running fine but a couple of weeks ago drives started to fail, initially 1 but then up to 8 drives all failed at the same time. Fortunately we had plenty of spares and array could rebuild before another drive failed although it took 20 hrs to rebuild 30Tb. HP advice was upgrade firmware and clear metadata on failed drives. All OK for a day but then drives all failed again. Currently 8 drives marked as failed. We have multiple MSA2000 G1's and G2's and no similar issues but all 1Tb drives. Anyone else seen this and know a solution?
