Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance: FMA 'pcie-fatal' event seen after upgrade of Infiniband CX-2 firmware on ZS3-ES

(Doc ID 2082722.1)

Last updated on MARCH 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-4 - Version All Versions and later
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA - Version All Versions and later
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 - Version All Versions and later
7000 Appliance OS (Fishworks)


Upgrading the IB CX-2 firmware from 2.7.8130 to 2.11.2010 resulted in PCIE fatal errors causing /SYS, /SYS/MB, /SYS/MB/RISER1/PCIE1 and /SYS/MB/P1 to be faulted on a Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-ES.

However, if we clear the faults, they will stay cleared until we do another upgrade.


Downgrade from 2.11.2010 back to 2.7.8130 or reflash (same version) do not incur the problem.
