DL160 with P420 - CACHE STATUS PROBLEM DETECTED

We have som problem with our DL160 Gen8 server with a Smart Array P420 disk controller.
Suddenly it started reporting like this:
------------------------------------------------
root# /usr/sbin/hpssacli ctrl all show config

Smart Array P420 in Slot 2 (sn: PDSXK0BRH6H3EQ)

CACHE STATUS PROBLEM DETECTED: The cache on this controller has a problem.
To prevent data loss, configuration changes to
this controller are not allowed.
Please replace the cache to be able to continue
to configure this controller.
------------------------------------------------

We changed the cache module but the error message is still there.
The server works as normal.

Anyone who has any idea what to do?

Thanks, Dan Erik

Re: DL160 with P420 - CACHE STATUS PROBLEM DETECTED

As the message says, this is a cache problem, if the module is already replaced and still getting this message you may try with a new one since some parts are DOA (dead on arrival), if not then try clearing the logs.
