1716 post errors on Raid 10 array on DL380 Gen 8


1716 post errors on Raid 10 array on DL380 Gen 8

Morning all.

I have a server that has recentlly had 2 similtaneous disk failures ona raid 10 configuration. 

Disks have ben replaced and rebuilt without any issue but now we are having these post errors and I have seen that there is HPE advisory saying that this could be a firmware bug on the disks.

I am planing on upgrading the firmware and running offline hardware diagnostics.

How do I check via Esxcli if this is Zero memory raid configured as it has a 2GB cache module on the array controller 

Thanks You for the help
