What is "CFFPS"???

Hi,

Our customer has an Isilon cluster of NL410×5.

Our engineer executed the following command.

  #isi upgrade cluster firmware devices

And the output is below.

#isi upgrade cluster firmware devices

Device          Type          Firmware               Mismatch     Lnns

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

QLogic-NX2     10GigE     7.13.0                    -                    1-5

BMC_S1400FP BMC        1.25.9722              -                    1-5

CFFPS1            CFFPS     04.14                    -                     1,5   

CFFPS1            CFFPS     02.02                    -                      1-4

CFFPS2            CFFPS     04.14                    -                       1,5

CFFPS2             CFFPS    02.02                    -                       1-4

...

I'd like to know why the LNN 1 appears on all  CFFPS collums.

And to now what is the CFFPS.

I think the CFFPS is Power Supply unit firmware, is it correct??

Regards,

Hi sa.taku,

Yes, you are correct. This is related to the firmware for the power supply.

Hi sjones5,

Thanks you for your answer.

Do you know why just only lnn1 appears on all of the CFFPS??

Is it related to replace power supplys?

Re: What is "CFFPS"???

Hi sa.taku,

If I understand it correctly, it just has to do with different versions of the firmware for different brands of power supplies.

Optimus_Flex: 04.14

Optimus_Acbel: 02.02

There does seem to be an issue with LNN 1 reporting different firmware versions for the same PS unit. From that node, if you run the following command, you will get an output that shows you if there is any problem with the PS unit and what version it should have:

#isi_hw_status

PwrSupl: PS1 (type=ACBEL POLYTECH , fw=09.05)

PwrSupl: PS2 (type=ACBEL POLYTECH , fw=09.05)

Power Supplies OK

Power Supply 1 good

Power Supply 2 good

Hi sjones5,

Thanks for your response.

I checked isi_gather_info, and found below.

<node1\isi_hw_status>

PwrSupl: PS1 (type=ACBEL POLYTECH, fw=02.02)

PwrSupl: PS2 (type=ACBEL POLYTECH, fw=02.02)

Power Supplies OK

Power Supply 1 good

Power Supply 2 good

<local\firmware>

CFFPS1                             CFFPS                   04.14                         5

CFFPS1                             CFFPS                   02.02                         1-4

CFFPS2                             CFFPS                   04.14                         5

CFFPS2                             CFFPS                   02.02                         1-4

I understood that the  command that had been executed by our engineer was incorrect.

(the output of isi_gather_info file is correct.)

Do you know the the command is incorrect?

Taku

Can you get output of "isi upgrade cluster firmware devices" again? Maybe it was halfway being upgraded during your initial query.

Hi Phil Lam,

I write the command output.(just only items which is related to this issue)

Unfortunately, our customer hasn't allow us to execute the command again.

Re: What is "CFFPS"???

Hi sa.taku,

I second Phil's recommendation to try to get the customer to allow you to run the command again. If the gather is showing correct now, I am willing to bet that the cluster will show the correct information as well. If it still does not, I would suggest opening a ticket with Isilon Support. https://onlinesupport.emc.com/SRCreate

Re: What is "CFFPS"???

Hi sjones5,

Our engineer collected isi_gather_info twice.

It was before and after executing "#isi upgrade cluster firmware devices" command.

<isi_gather_info which was collected before the command>

I think the reference sources are different between isi_gather_info and "isi upgrade cluster firmware devices" command.

Yesterday I opened SR to investigate this issue , but I haven't gotten any response yet.
