Symptoms

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.

 

Changes

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.
