Important Information

1. When viewing SATA physical disk properties from Ctrl-R or other management applications, the Vendor Identification will be translated as "ATA" followed by blanks.

2. If all physical disks making up a virtual disk are removed from the system or enclosure, the RAID controller will delete the virtual disk. If the disks are later re-inserted, they will be marked foreign and can be imported using a management application.

3. If a virtual disk is configured with write-back cache enabled and some or all of its physical disks are removed from the system or enclosure, the RAID controller will preserve the virtual disk's write cache. The controller will flush the preserved cache when the physical disks are replaced and the foreign configuration is imported. Any attempt to update controller firmware will be blocked when cache is preserved for a virtual disk.

4. Physical disks determined to contain a foreign configuration are not available for configuration as a new dedicated or global hot spare, or as a member of a new virtual disk. The foreign configuration must be imported or cleared from the physical disk before it may be used as a hot spare or member of a virtual disk. Physical disks with a foreign configuration will not appear on the Create New VD screen in Ctrl-R.

5. Prior to performing a virtual disk migration to another system, the source system must be powered off before removal of the physical disks to preserve the correct virtual disk state. This is not required for the target system and the physical disks may be inserted while the system is powered on or off.

6. The controller restricts the importing of virtual disks that are undergoing RAID Level Migration or Capacity Expansion. Do not interrupt virtual disks that are performing either of these operations because it will disable the ability to import the virtual disk and the data will be unavailable. Dell recommends that the user perform a data backup before starting these operations.

Fixes & Enhancements

1. Added fixes to improve hard drive medium error recovery that avoids bringing the controller off-line.
