Re: Problem with Array accelerator E200i

Hi Rob,
E200i controller does not work without Cache.
So if the cache is faulty the controller won't work.

Try refixing the cache before calling hp for replacement

Re: Problem with Array accelerator E200i

Hi TarunJain, please see the report file of the Array Diagnostic Utility, it is posible that the cache was disabled by the system? How can I enable the cache?

Re: Problem with Array accelerator E200i

You're running an old version of ACU/ADU and E200i Firmware. Update to the latest supported version for your server model.

SAS Drive Write Cache Enablement feature was incorporated in:

» Version: 7.85.18.0 (25 Jul 2007)
Enhancements
Enabled drive write cache for all SAS controllers

The latest is:
» Version: 8.35.7.0 (28 Sep 2009)
Enhancements
Changes for ACU 8.35.X.X:

Various performance and feature updates
Additions to Diagnostic output

Also your E200i Firmware is old. Update to 1.84:

After updating re-run ACU and check the status and configuration settings. Then run ADU if needed and post.

Re: Problem with Array accelerator E200i

Hi,

Error: Permanently disabled

Action 1:

You have to give 72 hours for the battery to fully charge. After that the cache should be enabled.

Action 2:
1. Down the server and turn off the power.
2. Remove the hard drives (just pull them out an inch or so).
3. Power on the server and allow the server to complete POST.
4. Once POST has completed, power off the server
5. Re-insert the hard drives
6. Power on the server and the cache should now be enabled.

Solution: replace the accelerator battery

then look at the following link :)
