Level of Importance:Recommended

Dell recommends applying this update during your next scheduled update cycle. The update contains feature enhancements or changes that will help keep your system software current and compatible with other system modules (firmware, BIOS, drivers and software).

Important Information

Known Limitations:

  1. In Joined bus/Clustering mode, firmware is downloaded to both EMMs automatically (assuming that the second EMM is installed) by failing over and then failing back. In Split bus mode, however, updating firmware on one EMM does not automatically update the other EMM. Therefore, in order to update both EMMs, the user must download directly through the cable to each EMM.

    NOTE: It is strictly prohibited to have an Active/Active cluster while doing firmware downloads to avoid issues with the cluster.

  2. When using Array Manager 3.1.1 (or less) in Clustering mode, EMM firmware can only be upgraded on the primary EMM (the left one when viewing the enclosure from the back). Therefore, in order to update both EMMs, the user must download firmware to each EMM individually.

  3. If the PV22XS is configured with one EMM and one termination module in Joined bus mode, an error message will pop up when upgrading the firmware through Array Manager 3.1.1 (or less). This is an invalid error message in this scenario. If the fans have gone back to normal speed, then the firmware download was successful. To verify this, stop and restart the Disk Management Service. Then you can view the firmware version under the enclosure properties.

  4. Firmware updates to enclosures attached to PERC 2/DC, PERC3/SC/QC/DC/DCL, or any PERC4 array controllers require that Array Manager be at release 3.4 or greater; while PERC 2/QC or PERC 3/Di controllers require that Array Manager be at least 3.5 or greater.

  5. Important Linux Requirements: "libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3" is required for running this application. If this library is not found on the system,the following error will appear.

    ./getSystemId: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Collecting inventory... ./PV2XXA00: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot openshared object file: No such file or directory

    In order to install the missing files, you would need to install "compat-libstdc++-[Y.Y]-2.96.[XXX].i386.rpm" package from Red Hat distribution CD, where "XXX" is the version number of package and "Y.Y" is the release. Install the package as described below.

    E.g. on RH9.0 distribution do following:

    (Note: for RH9.0 the package to be installed is located on disc 1)

    # cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS # rpm -ihv compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.i386.rpm(e.g. on RH 9.0 distribution)

Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes: fixes a rare issue with the handling of SCSI bus parity error responses by the EMM. This may result in a SCSI bus reset and cause a pause of several seconds (depending on configuration) in I/O processing. The I/O operation will automatically retry and recover. There is no associated risk of data loss, security, long term reliability or other performance issues. Enhancements: N/A
