HDD EG0450FBVFM firmware problems?


10 disks model: EG0450FBVFM in MSA 2000 G3 with firmware HPDC. All work normal. All disks was updated to firmware HPDE (latest on site).

Flash process completed without any errors, all drives work (green), but strange mechanical noise form all disk begin after firmware update to last version (HPDE) Noise like cycle mechanical operations in background, but more more louder!  

Ok. We remove all disk from MSA, attack disks to P410 at G7 server, all work but we hear very strange HDD noise as above after disks start (((

Ok. All disks was re-flash back to HPDC, restart and NO noise at all …

What’s this ? Bugs in firmware? May be some fix for it?

I would suggest update the P410 firmware as well as MSA firmware.
Let me know if the issue persists.
