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

Firmware upgrade while controller is doing background I/O task: Do not run if Back Ground Initialization is in process or may take place. Firmware upgrade process will fail if any background I/O task (i.e. RAID-5 background consistency check or power on auto-resume rebuild and reconstruction) is being performed. BGI also occurs approximately 5 minutes after creating a Raid volume. If BGI occurs during Microcode down load, the drive will fail and blink amber light. Drive will accept Microcode download after BGI finishes with no negative effects.
