Description

This package provides the Dell PERC H200 Integrated Modular Firmware Release

Level of Importance:Urgent

Dell highly recommends applying this update as soon as possible. The update contains changes to improve the reliability and availability of your Dell system.

Important Information

- When installing an OS, be sure to select a Boot Device in CTRL+C. In CTRL+C, under SAS Topology, scroll down to the desired Physical Disk or Virtual Disk and enter ALT+B to select the device as your Boot Device. - Resynch, Background Init and Consistency Check processes will always occur serially. - When viewing SATA physical disk properties from Ctrl-C or other management applications, Vendor Identification must be translated as "ATA" followed by blanks. Please see SATA translation specification, revision 5, pages 24-25 for more details. - When adding a PERC H200 controller to a system, either by physically adding an adapter or by enabling the integrated SAS controller in the system BIOS, the new controller may need to be added to the controller boot order in the PERC H200 BIOS configuration Utility. At POST, hit CTRL-C to enter the utility and verify or modify the controller boot order. - The firmware upgrade may fail if any of the RAID controllers in the system are performing an I/O background task (that is, consistency check, background initialization, rebuild, or reconstruction). Allow the background task to complete before attempting to upgrade the firmware. Patrol Read tasks will not affect a firmware upgrade. * Linux systems running one or more applications that interact with SCSI devices in certain ways are known to cause a kernel panic situation. Therefore, it is recommended that you stop Server Administrator and its Storage Management Service before running storage controller firmware update packages. To stop the Dell OpenManage(TM) Server Administrator service, run "omconfig system webserver action=stop" To start the Server Administrator service, run "omconfig system webserver action=start" To stop the Server Administrator Storage Management Service, run "/etc/init.d/dataeng stop" To start the Server Administrator Storage Management Service, run "/etc/init.d/dataeng start"
