On Sun StorEdge 35xx Arrays running 3.27R firmware, setting the value 'Auto Global Spare' to enabled may result in existing Logical Drives to be lost (Doc ID 1012774.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2013

Applies to:

Sun Storage 3510 FC Array - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Storage 3511 SATA Array - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Storage 3310 Array - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Storage 3320 SCSI Array - Version Not Applicable and later
All Platforms


On a Sun StorEdge 3310/3320/3510/3511 array, logical drives may be lost if the auto-global-spare attribute is enabled.  This will occur when a disk, in an existing logical drive, is  marked as "NONE BAD" and the array is rebooted. Upon reboot, the disk will become a global spare and the Logical Disk will be lost.



The only change is the failure of a disk. The sccli command show disks will report something similar to the output for disk Id 1.
