This alert pertains to SC280 or SCv180 84 slot drive enclosures. It contains specific information related to system features and/or functionality.
It is a best practice recommendation to have a minimum of four Managed Spares per fully populated SC280 or SCv180 enclosure. However, when deploying an SC280 or SCv180 enclosure connected to a new or an existing Storage Center system, Dell Storage Manager may not allow more than a single Managed Spare to be allocated.
If the Storage Center OS version is less than 7.x, use the Storage Center GUI during SC280 or SCv180 deployment and choose the proper amount of Managed Spares.
If the Storage Center OS version is 7.0.1 through 7.1.12, Support will need to manually set the proper amount of Managed Spares via the command line. Contact Dell support to assist.
SC040, SCv2000 series, SC4020, SC5020, SC7020, SC8000, and SC9000 Storage Center platforms running SCOS version less than 7.1.20.
This is resolved in SCOS versions 7.1.20 and 7.2.10 and higher.
