Important Information

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

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 the cable connecting a PERC 5/E to an enclosure is removed, the RAID
controller will immediately delete all virtual disks on that enclosure. To
recover, power down the server and ensure all cables in the configuration are
securely connected. When the server is powered on, the RAID controller will
detect the disks as foreign and the configuration can be imported with a
management application.

4. Physical disks determined to contain a foreign configuration are not
available for configuration as a new dedicated or global hotspare, 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 hotspare 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, 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. This version of firmware will not ensure complete compatibility with an
older version of the management application, OpenManage 5.0 or 5.1.
OpenManage 5.2 or greater is recommended.

7. 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.

8. The firmware 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.

9. Foreign dedicated hot spares are now imported as global hot spares.

10. Default Physical disk cache settings for hard drives are ON for SATA drives
and OFF for SAS drives.

11. A EMM change or a drive migration is not a supported action during a
Capacity Expansion or Raid Level Migration. This may cause the VDs to go offline.
Dell recommends the user to take a data backup before starting these operations.

12. A Rebuild operation cannot be stopped/interrupted from the Ctrl+R configuration utility
but can be done from the Dell Open Manage Storage Management Software.
