Dell PowerVault 220S/221S SES Firmware, v.E.17, A06

The PV22xS_E17.bin file is the downloadable version of the enclosure firmware that provides management functions for the PowerVault 220S/221S. These functions include SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) and SCSI Accessed Fault-Tolerant Enclosures (SAF-TE) reporting to the host initiator, control of all enclosure LED indicators, and monitoring of all the enclosure's environmental elements.

Fixes & Enhancements

Firmware E.17 is strictly a maintenance release for PV220S/PV221S. Dell recommends that all PV220S/PV221S be at minimal level of E.16 or greater. Systems having E.16 is not required to upgrade to E.17, which provides the following updates: Removed reading of fans and power supply FRU part numbers to fix manufacturing test issues. FRU (Field Replaceable Units) are also referred to as service part numbers. No impact to customers since service calls always cross reference to the latest available service part number. Add retry operations to read FRUs if it failed to read previously during enclosure initialization.

Windows Dell Update Packages Procedure


Dell Update Packages (DUPs) are software utilities provided by Dell to update specific software components on your Dell system. DUPs provide an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) that enables you to apply a software update to either a single system or, remotely, to multiple systems using your organization’s software distribution tools. DUPs run separately from Array Manager, so you can use a DUP if Array Manager is not available on your host system. Dell provides DUPs for the following operating systems:


  • Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server

  • Windows Server 2003

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Version 2.1)

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Version 3) for Intel x86


Windows DUP Update Procedure

The following procedure updates the firmware on a PowerVault 22xS storage system that is attached to a host system that is running the 32-bit version of Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server, or Windows Server 2003, without Array Manager.
  1. Stop all I/O activity to the storage system.

  2. Create a directory on your local file system.

  3. Download the executable Windows DUP package file (PV220s-221s-FRMW-Rxxxxx.exe, where Rxxxxx indicates the release) from the Dell Support website at support.dell.com and save the file to the directory you created in step 2.

  4. Double-click the downloaded file to uncompress the file and start the update.

  5. When prompted, click Install to update the firmware. When the update is complete, a message appears indicating that the update was successful.

  6. Restart I/O activity to the storage system.

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.

  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.
