Re: Unknown Blades

It's already running 1.3. Looks like a backplane problem.

Thanks for the help.

I've seen that before, but usually during initial installs. I ended up having to move slots for the blade to basically "reset" the OA's settings. Once that was done, was able to move it back and it redetected it just fine.

Re: Unknown Blades

It's now fixed. We had to remove the blades and move them into another enclosure and power cycle the enclosure. Everything is now good.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Unknown Blades

Same issue here. A week after upgrading to 1.3 firmware suddenly 3 blades became unknown. Pulling out and replugging the Admin board didn't do anything and we can't exactly afford "moving" blades around to reset the thing, neither resetting the entire enclosure. 1.2 downgrade didn't make the blades visible again. Any other possibilities?

Re: Unknown Blades

Let me guess, firmware update of the blades is out of the question?

ILO - 1.26
OA - 1.30

Re: Unknown Blades

We are having the same problem. I just updated the firmware on our 2 c-Class enclosures from 1.20 to 1.30 and now 5 of our 10 blades are showing up as unknown and the fans have kicked up to 89%.
