Sun Storage 6140 Array - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The problem described in this document is specific to a Sun Storage 6140 array being upgrading to a Sun Storage 6180 array by controller replacement. There are two possible symptoms that may arise from this upgrade, depending on the Firmware version of the new controllers:
- For controllers with 7.77.xx.xx or lower, you may see a Non-compliant slot limit alarm (90.66.1368).
- For controllers with 7.80.xx.xx firmware, you will see non-compliant drives.
The first symptom is covered in this document. If you encounter the second, please refer to Document 1471865.1 Upgrading Existing Storage Hardware to a Sun Storage 6x80 Array Running Firmware 7.80.xx.xx May Cause Existing Drives to Become Incompatible for the proper resolution.
The net affect of this alarm (90.66.1368) is that the configuration changes to the array are disallowed, until the issue is resolved. In the meantime, all other array functions will behave as normal.
Upgrading the controllers in a Sun Storage 6140 array with 2 host ports per controller to a Sun Storage 6180 array that also has 2 host ports per controller. The Non-compliant slot limit alarm will not be seen when upgrading to a Sun Storage 6180 array that has 4 host ports per controller.
