Re: MSA2312FC controller error -2194

I would first try to boot the system with a single controller. Maybe one of them is bad and takes the other down.

It could be a bad chassis (backplane) too, hard to tell ...


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSA2312FC controller error -2194

Hi,

 

I  try to boot the system with a single controller with same result.

In another chassis controllers failed too.

 

I think this is software problem.

Re: MSA2312FC controller error -2194

I don't think a new code load would help, there must be something broken ...


Hope this helps!
