The Storage System Summary View in CAM reports the health of a managed array as "No Contact". Similarly, CAM CLI (sscs) reports the same.
When the array is selected, all of the reporting and inquiry information appears to be working. All FRU's show up with a respective status, revision, and health.
The secondary symptom shows up when any type of firmware upgrade is attempted. The upgrade will fail regardless of the technique used.
