Dell Disk Reporting Update, v.5.20.2204.0, A00

This patch corrects a potential problem in which hard drive hotplug warning messages are incorrectly displayed as an eight digit string (similar to 8C000001) in the Status tab of the NAS Manager Web User Interface.

This issue only affects Dell PowerVault 725N software RAID systems with version 2.3.6.1 displayed on the system desktop.

While changes should be immediate, if symptoms persist a reboot may be necessary.
