Proliant ML 360 G6 Esxi 4.1 Firmware Update Disaster

Hello

Urgent Problem

I made a firmware update on a Proliant ML 360 G6 with Direct Attached Storage. SAS Disks.

After Boot I cant access the Storage with the VMs. It was a big shock for me.
I updated the Bios and the Smart Array P410 with the HP Firmware Maintence DVD 9.20.

What can I do to access the storage???

Its a productive Machine.


best regards
Olivier

Hello,
- could you check your logical volumes status inside ACU - during booting server?
- is it internal array or some kind of DAS?

I disabled bios boot up logo then I see a smart array error. Like this:

Logical drive(s) disabled due to possible data loss.
Select "F1" to continue with logical drive(s) disabled
Select "F2" to accept data loss and to re-enable logical drive(s)
RESUME = "F1" OR "F2" KEY

Then I pressed F2 and now the datastore is again available. My boss would kill me when the VMS was destroyed. Fortunately the datastore are accesible again.

I remember the Firmware Upgrade DVD would upgrade the Harddisks but failed. Should I upgrade the Disk from hpd5 to hpd6, because of the new Smart Array Firmware???
