If everything works as expected with the module removed, I would try this.

First and foremost, make sure you have a valid data backup

Power off, unplug drives (not necessary to remove from drive bay, just unplug from backplane connector
Install cache module and upgrade controller firmware
Power off,  plug drives back in and power back on.

All the array information is stored on each drive in the array. The newer controller firmware supports arrays created with older controller firmware.  

I have seen this error, but only when moving drives from one machine to another, where the replacement system has older controller firmware.  A firmware update resolves the issue


 

Thank you for that, but how can I update the firmware with the drives unplugged? I dont' have a seperate disk for the OS. Is there a bootable version of the firmware. I only have a .exe file.

Do you have an OS running on this server?

 

No need to unplug the drives, just run the update utility followed by a reboot.


Hope this helps!
