Upgrading a Sun Storage 6140 Array to a Sun Storage 6180 Array May Create a Non-Compliant Slot Alarm. (Doc ID 1489631.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2012

Sun Storage 6140 Array - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

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:

While it is possible for this error code (xx.66.1368) to be seen in any 25x0/25x0M2/6130/6x80 array, all other instances would be created by exceeding the maximum number of supported trays for that array. 

 

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.

Changes

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.
