Last updated on JUNE 11, 2024

Applies to:

Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) - Version 5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Common Array Manager (CAM) is generating an alarm for a fault against one of its registered arrays. CAM fails to report the appropriate description and grid code for the alarm. The details may look something like the following.

This document only applies to situations where there are no outstanding hardware or firmware fault present in the array and below symptoms are met for the reported alarm.


The alarm does not necessarily follow any change. It may have been there for a long time, but just recently noticed. Changes which might trigger the problem include a recent upgrade to CAM, or even a removal/re-registration process. It  may also occur after resolving a Lost Communication Event.
