Flare code warning, and

If you have EMC CX4 storage and are using Mirrorview, I suggest you hold off any Flare upgrades past 009 unless directed by EMC Technical Support. Some EMC customers have had issues with 012 including serious Mirrorview performance problems.

EMC engineering have pulled version 009 and prior from Powerlink due to “emc261544: Detecting memory leaks with Pool LUNs in FLARE Release 30.” which is resolved in FLARE Release but this code introduces another different issue, the management server requires reboots from time to time to allow Unisphere management.

There is also a required frumon update (emc261645- for LCC to version 7.85 to protect against possible dual Power supply failure, this is unlikely but bad stuff does happen.

    “this is unlikely but bad stuff does happen”

    Actually, more likely than you might think. We had a P/S go bad and when the other one’s fan picked up speed the array saw it as a problem and shut down the disks.

    Sorry to heard that Tim, I bet you had some fun when you lost the DAE.
    There you go folks, do the frumon update ASAP or you too could lose a DAE!
