P4300 Cluster: Remove suspect node - no current FOM

P4300 Cluster: Remove suspect node - no current FOM

Last week I had tried updating a P4300 4 node cluster from 8.5.x to 10.5.x.  In the attempt the single FOM dropped never to come back online again.  I then proceeded to create a FOM 10.5.x to be added to the cluster once I had upgrded the nodes, only to fail once more.  This time, there is 1 node that is complaining that all Fans and Power supplies are bad.  The alerts/diagnostic must be a false/positive as I have checked myself. 

 

Cluster Info

4 - P4300

RAID5 Config

All volumes are RAID10 (2-Way Mirror)

Free Space 9%

 

Are there any recommendations on how to proceed from here? 

Is it possible to remove the node from the cluster and restripe?

Is there somewhere I can get the ESX FOM 8.5.x ovf?

 

Thanks.

I have shutdown the suspet node and let it sit for 30min then powered it back on.  The health is amber but fans are blowing as well as both PSUs.

contact support over that one.

 

As for the failure of the FOM during the upgrade.  v10.5 is x64 while I think <v9.5 is all x32 so the FOM cannot be upgraded directly and HP says to remove the old FOM and reinstall a new one instead of upgrading it (as you did).
