P2000G3 Dual Controller failover not working

hi all

 my P2000FC Dual controller having 1 vdisk and 2 volumes.Recently Controller A failed and Controller B Did not take vdisk ownership autometically and i can not access vdisk,from web UI non of the  HDD shown.after removeing  the failed Controller A from the enclosure, Controller B become vdisk owner and i can access the vdisk.

My question is why Controller B did not take vdisk ownership once Controller A failed?if i need to change vdisk ownership mannuly then what is the benifit of Dual controller?is there any configuration is require for atuometic Controller failover?

IMHO the "failed" controller was not really dead, but blocked the other controller. Could be an issue of old firmware ...

Hope this helps!
