Description

Dell Sas6/iR Integrated Firmware Release; Package Version: 00.25.47.00.06.22.03.00

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

- 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 multiple logical disks are configured on the SAS 6/iR and when viewing the logical disks from RAID Properties of the Ctrl-C BIOS utility, the order in which the logical disks are displayed may be reversed from the order in which they are created. This has no effect on the adapter functionality or boot order of the logical disks. - When adding a SAS 6/iR 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 SAS 6/iR BIOS configuration Utility. At POST, hit CTRL-C to enter the utility and verify or modify the controller boot order. - Migration of RAID Volumes from SAS 6/iR controllers to PERC6 controllers is supported only for volumes originally created on SAS 6/iR controllers running FW revision 00.25.47.00 or later. - This version of firmware will not ensure complete compatibility with an older version of the management application. OpenManage 5.5 or greater is recommended. - It is recommended that the customer upgrade the management application and device driver to the latest version available from Dell at the time of installation of this firmware. - Before updating the SAS controller firmware using the DUP package in a Linux system, it is necessary to upgrade the SAS controller driver. Executing the SAS controller firmware DUP update while running a native Linux driver may cause the system/data volumes on the SAS controller to become inaccessible or Read-Only. The recommended steps to update the SAS controller using the firmware DUP package on a Linux system to this new software level are as follows: 1.Upgrade the driver 2.Reboot the system 3.Upgrade the firmware 4.Reboot the system The problem does not occur if the SAS controller FW is updated from a bootable device (non Linux environment).

Fixes & Enhancements

BIOS - 06.22.03.00 NEW FUNCTIONALITY: None. DEFECT FIXES: -Implements a change to allow some RAID1 volumes created with earlier SAS 6/iR FW revisions to be migrated to controllers with this FW revision. - Implements a change to order the controller list based on defined controller type instead of static chip-based references - Updates verify functionality to allow user to escape once Reassign All has been selected and drive is no longer responding. - Removes rescan for devices on any keystroke in view array screen. Rescan will now only be performed on Alt+N keystroke. FIRMWARE - 00.25.47.00 NEW FUNCTIONALITY: - Modifies coercion of RAID volumes to align with PERC. This facilitates migration of SAS6 RAID volumes to PERC6. DEFECT FIXES: -Implements a change to allow some RAID1 volumes created with earlier SAS 6/iR FW Revisions to be migrated controllers with this FW revision or later. -Improves robustness in handling Task Management events during heavy IO -Implements a change to correct an issue with initialization of interposer attached SATA drives where link to the drive could be left in a state where it was possible that I/Os could be timed out and have to be retried by the host.
