Re: admithw (require firmware upgrades)

I'm watching this thread as I have the exact same thing on several arrays.

Re: admithw (require firmware upgrades)

IIRC the issue went away after I did a

> setalert ack all -a

or something similar to set the alert to ack or fixed.


Hope this helps!

This should be updating the HBA FW automatically.

This this only does cages and admithw will do this for you.

> the issue went away after I did a

Not sure why ack all alerts should make a difference?

Re: admithw (require HBA firmware upgrades)

I have seen the same cage warning after a firmware upgrade and AFTER admithw and the cage upgrade and it went away after a while after I did the setalert command. Not sure if it was related.


Hope this helps!

This is a HBA warning, not cage.

Re: admithw (require HBA firmware upgrades)

Have same issue on multple Systems.

Regarding HPE support, that's a cosmetic issue and will be fixed in a later release.


======================
That was not planned in this way.
